Card Positioning Systems Sponsor

Hello! This week several of the Gina K Illustrators are sponsoring the latest Card Positioning Systems Sketch! I donated the "Pressed Flowers" stamp set, so I used it in my sample for their sketch.
I inked up the tulips with markers and stamped them onto Pure Luxury White, cut them out, then popped them up over this houndstooth Lovely Label. I used greetings from my new "A Beautiful Life" set, inking them in red then balck on the bottom to create the two tones. For fun I decided to make the classic houndstooth a little funkier by adding some red to the pattern. Mats are Black Onyx and Red Hot. Thanks for looking! :)

Hope you will go check out the CPS sketch 159 and all the samples made by their team. Submit your own creation using the sketch in their Mr. Linky on the CPS blog and possibly win a Gina K Designs set from one of our illustrators! I hope you'll join the fun!
