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!

My first card uses Cammie's new set Elegant Flourishes.  The sentiment is from the Stampers Favorites set below.



My second card uses Melanies new set Stamper's Favorites.  I decided to dust off my heat tool and emboss the feather. I was going to color it in but decided I really liked the contrast it created.
