CSS 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.



What a beautiful picture Gina has challenged us with. I just LOVE this Hope is Faith stamp set! The Butterfly is Gorgous!! I went with a more CAS card to let the butterfly shine. I stamped the butterfly twice and cut one out and attached it in the center. It looks like it's flying off the card. I colored the butterfly with copics and sponged softly around it. Thanks for stopping by!

Stop by these designer's participating in the hop tonight:
