Gina K. Designs APRIL Inspiration Blog Hop Day #2

The Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop!
Gina and the Design Team will inspire you with many beautiful ideas!
As you hop through the blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a few random comments and those stampers will each win a grab bag of deeply etched, pre-cut Gina K. Designs stamps! To see the full list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops!!

Today we are sharing our cards and projects made using Sweet Strawberries and Vintage Notes.

Here is my card using Sweet Strawberries:
I used the strawberry drink glass to make my own patterned paper and added the birthday sentiment to finish it up.  The papers I used are all from Gina K's Pure Luxury card stock line: Jelly bean Green, Black Onyx and White.

and one using Vintage Notes:
That one started out in my head as a card for a man...then I went a little crazy with some rhinestones and picked some flowery paper...oops!  I hope you like it!
The patterned paper is Poppy Prints.

Check out all of the amazing designs and inspiration:
See you tomorrow with another Gina K. Designs new release blog hop!

Thanks for visiting me today and have an absolutely fabulous rest of your day or night :)
