CTMH Paper Focus Blog Hop - Heartstrings

Welcome to our Team Blog Hop where we are featuring Close To My Heart's paper packet, "Heartstrings".  Isn't it just beautiful?! doesn't look as as fabulous in the photo as it does in person!  You'll have to get you some to see for yourself!
If you are coming from Debi McBain's Blog, you are on the right track.  Should you get lost along the way, a complete list of participants is listed at the end of this post.

While the "Heartstrings" paper pack and stamp set screams, Valentine's Day to me - which I love - I decided to make an attempt at a different theme. I have several papercrafting addictions...Shimmer Trim, Enamel Hearts, and a new one...BANNERS!  When a card needs a little something more, try a dove-tailed banner.  Works perfectly almost every time.  LOL
I made three banners for this card, using the back side of the Lagoon B&T (gotta love having both sides to work with), some Cotton Candy cardstock and of course, Silver Shimmer Trim! I added two Silver Sequins for some sparkle (soon to become another addition - lol).

I incorporated the January Stamp of the Month, "This Moment", which goes perfectly with the paper packet.  Now that I'm looking at this card... I'm thinking that "Be Amazing" should be my mantra for the year.  Hmmm...  Never hurts to be inspired by artwork!
Head on over to Melissa David's Blog to check out her CUTE stuff, after leaving a comment, if you would like.  (I always love reading your thoughts regarding my artwork.)

Happy hoppin'!
