May Joyful Stars Blog Hop with Global Design Projects Sketch

Welcome back to the May 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!

The card I am sharing with you today uses some 

beautiful new papers from the May National 

Scrapbooking special called "Live Beautifully" and 

the Flower Market cartridge. The image I chose is 

called Cherry Blossoms and reminds me of the cherry

trees in my backyard that have been dropping most of 
their pink petals.

Here is a slightly different angled photo so you can better see the shiny gold foil backgrounds and gold shimmer on the ribbon.

     Live Beautifully paper
     Flower Market Cricut cartridge
     Blossom CS
     Raspberry CS
     Fern CS
     Chocolate CS
     Peacock CS
     Peacock Ink
     Jack Cardmaking Bundle greeting stamp
     Gold Shimmer Brush
     Uptown Fundamentals (gold mat for greeting)

The inspiration for my card layout came from Global Design Project #86:

     Die Cuttin Divas--Mother's Day or Feminine
