My First Gina K. Card!!!

Yay! I'm finally back and creating! It feels so good to finally have my stamping space sorted after the move, and ohhhhh so good to be stamping again! I just had to use some of my brand new stamps from Gina K. I went to browse the Gina K. member forum hoping for sketch inspiration or a jumping off point (I was feeling a tad rusty!) and found this awesome challenge from the artist of this set herself, Melanie Meunchinger! I just love her stamps, so this was perfect for my first Gina K card. In fact, I have the rest of her stamps top of my wishlist!

While I think of it, I can't recommend Gina K. stamps enough! The rubber is gorrrgeous, wonderful quality and the customer service is above and beyond. Poor Gina had to deal with my changing my address mid order, and she was fantastic!

The sketch for this card comes from Cupcake Challenge #23. I've long been an admirer of the challenges at Taylored Expressions, but this was my first time playing.

I'm sending this card to my parents and youngest brother, I miss them terribly now I've moved cross country!
