I made a card for 2 different challenges using some of our new papers from the new Spring/Summer Idea Book. The card design is from Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge shown below. If you want to see several other ideas from this sketch click on the link above.

The other challenge I used for this card used the 1-2-3 Challenge from the  Heart 2 Heart  Blog site. Be sure and click on this link too and find more great ideas for this fun idea. For this challenge we were to create something using only 1 stamp, 2 different patterned papers, and 3 embellishments. I don't know if the flowers and the brads are supposed to be counted separate or not, but, I thought the flowers needed something in the centers.

I used patterned paper from the Stella Paper Pack for the big design at the back. I used the Chocolate Stamp Pad to distress the edges to add depth. I also cut it from our Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge. What an easy way to cut parts for our projects! The horizontal piece is from the Florentine Paper Pack. I cut around the scallop with my very essential CTMH scissors. Easy way to have a scallop! I distressed the edges with Chocolate. The scalloped circle is cut from Cocoa Cardstock and once again cut from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge. The stamp is from one of the exclusive stamp sets that comes in the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge. Yes, it also can be cut from the cartridge!
The darling paper flowers are brand new in the Spring/Summer Idea Book on page 128. They are in a pack of several called Paradise Paper Flowers- Z1710. Everything is made from Close To My Heart products.

I would love to see what you do with this. Make your card or whatever you desire and post your picture in my Close To My Heart Artwork Album so we can all enjoy your creativity. You will be eligible to have your name put in the pot for a free gift! And of course, feel free to comment also. I love to hear from you.
