April Joyful Stars Blog Hop

Welcome back to the April Joyful Stars Blog Hop! We are a group of Close to My Heart consultants who share something each month on the 9th and at 9PM EST. If you are coming from Betty Locco's blog you are on the right track. (The complete lineup is also on Joyce's blog in case you get lost.) Have fun being inspired!

My card features "Birthday Sparkles" and various trims from Close to My Heart--Gold Foil Tape, Black and Gold Ribbon, Black Shimmer Trim and Black Shimmer Ribbon. Although it may be difficult to see I used the Clear Shimmer Brush on the stamped "sprinkles".  The background panel is Sea Glass cardstock over Black cardstock.

I'm including another photograph so you can see the shiny gold from a different angle as sometimes it just appears black.  The three black accents on the bottom stripe were made with a hole punch and Black Shimmer Trim.

Here is the the fabulous sketch that was the inspiration for my card:

Other challenges:
     Simon Says Wednesday--Happy Birthday
     Seize the Birthday--optional topping--vellum

Now it's time to hop on over to my friend Jennifer Benner's blog. I'm sure you'll be inspired by what she shares.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!

  1. Love the ribbons and tape on your card. I always like the clean and simple cards, especially when you can use them for "guy" cards! Can you please change your link to go directly to Debi's blog? Jenn Benner does not have a project this month. Thanks you.

  2. You always have so many inspiring card sketches!
