Atlantic Hearts Sketch #265 with Beautiful Friendship Paper

Beautiful Friendship is a beautiful paper pack from Close to My Heart and I'm using it with this fabulous sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch #65.



I've added some Bashful Pearls, Bashful card stock and Glitz Glitter Gel on the floral piece.  The new Stitched Circles Thin Cuts were used to cut the circles.  The greeting is from February's Stamp of the Month called "Sunny Thoughts".  It was stamped with Sapphire pigment ink and clear embossed.

Here is the wonderful sketch I followed:

May 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 card features a new stamp from the Central Park Scrapbooking Stamp set.  It was stamped with Black Memento Ink onto Bashful Card Stock.  It is backed with Silver Foil Card Stock and colored in with a Silver Metallic Marker.  (The doily was "rescued" from a restaurant and is not a CTMH product.)  The Sapphire background panel is layered over Silver Foil Card Stock.  I love how Bashful and Sapphire look together!


My card layout was inspired by this fabulous sketch from Sketch Saturday:



I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
     Crafty Cardmakers--No Patterned Paper
     Crafts Galore Encore--Anything Goes
     Always Fun Challenge #57--For a Female/Mom
     Use Your Stuff--Mood Board--inspired by Pink
     Addicted to Stamps and More--Anything Goes

Now head on over to Andrea Sherman's blog.  I'm sure you'll be inspired by her project!
