CSS Alumni Blog Hop

Welcome to the 4th CSS Gina K Designs Blog Hop! Carolina challenged the CSS Alumni team to create a card based on this sketch:

Is that not a fun and challenging sketch? It is based on Cheri's card from the very first CSS Alumni Blog Hop and certainly stretched my creative thinking!
Here is my card:

I used some of My Minds Eye (So Sophie) patterned paper and kept to a brown/green color combo. Instead of a clean circle, I used Labels Nine to form my opening shape. I used the stamp sets: Lovely Labels, Fun Year Round and Inside and Out. Quite a fun card to put together. Your next stop on the CSS Alumni Hop is Joan.... can't wait to see what she has created!

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope to hop along myself...
Blessings,

Jennie, how clever of you to used Nina's label and matching Spellbinders die for the cut out. The background embossing rocks. I love the vintage feel of this card.

Jennie, I love your card. First of all, you used my color(green) and then you so cleverly used Nina's labels with the Nesties to create the cut out, BRAVO!
