Gina K Designs CSS Inspiration Blog Hop


Feelings of Hope 

Gina challenged the CenterStage Spotlight team to make a card with the new Hope is Faith stamp set using  the photo above for inspiration.  Check out Gina's blog for all the details on this special stamp set.

When I first looked at the photograph I was inspired by the butterfly on the flowers.  So I made several cards with floral designer paper and added a floating butterfly.  My first three cards were all based on that inspiration.


Paper: Basic Grey Wisteria

Paper: Basic Grey Wisteria

Then I looked at the photograph a few days later and made another card that is a little more literal representation of the inspiration photo.  Here is what I created



Then, stop by these designer's participating in the hop tonight:
