Love Note for September Joyful Stars Blog Hop

Welcome back to another 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 Debi Brile's blog you are on the right track. (The complete lineup is on Joyce's blog in case you get lost.) Have fun being inspired!  

My favorite new stamp set from the recently released Close to My Heart Holiday  Expressions catalog is "Love Note".  It has several sentiments and this beautiful marble like background stamp.  It was stamped in the new color Sugarplum.  Although the other color looks black in this photo it is actually Charcoal.  Some white enamel dots accent the left side of the card.  The sentiment was stamped with Charcoal Pigment Ink and then clear embossed.

Here is the new stamp set used in my card:

My card layout was inspired by this fabulous Freshly Made Sketch #353:

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
      Simon Says Wednesday--Stamp on It
      Pause Dream Enjoy--Anything Card
      Crafting With An Attitude--Anything Goes

Now it's time to head over to Michelle Loncar's blog--I'm sure you'll be inspired by what she has to share.
Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
