Gina K Nature's Greetings blog hop

Hi everyone!  Welcome to another Gina K. Design Team blog hop. Today we are sharing cards and projects using the gorgeous Nature's Greetings set. If you came from the fabulous Lee Murphy's blog, you're at the right place. If not make sure to head over to StampTV where you will find a list of everyone participating in today's hop.
My card uses the butterfly image.  I embossed it in black and colored it in with copic markers.  The detailing in this butterfly is stunning.  AND I love the sentiments that come in this set.  You will get lots of mileage with this set.  See the embossing in the background?  That is the new Spellbinders Grand Impressabilities Sea Star template and it's super pretty.

Head on over to Suzanne's Blog to see what she's sharing with you today!  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop.
