First ever CSS team blog hop!!!

Welcome to our first Center Stage Spotlight Design Team Blog Hop!

How fun is this???? I'm so excited to be able to take part in this hop!!!!

Jessica Fick, the Design Team Coordinator for GinaK Designs has issued a challenge to all of the past and present team CSS team members to make a Christmas card with one of these sketches:



We know you're going to LOVE what everyone has designed for us tonight!

I used 2 of my favorite holiday sets....Warm and Cozy Christmas and Seasonal Sayings. I used the classic and scallop circle nesties to cut out my image. I colored the little girl with Primsacolor Pencils blended with OMS. I added some glitter pen to the snowflakes and some black glaze to the buttons and the "joy" sentiment. I used Glimmer Mist on the white sateen flowers....adding a red rhinestone flower to the center of each one.

First, here are the links for GinaK's Current CSS Team Members:
