Sneak Peek of Chantilly - Birthday Card

The day after the new Seize The Birthday challenge was posted, my new products for Close To My Heart's Spring Summer Idea Book arrived.  As I opened each packet of new paper I knew immediately that I would be creating a card with Chantilly for this challenge!   If you haven't discovered Seize the Birthday yet, it's brand new and I'm going to really like this one.  It's all about Birthday cards!  They will post a new Sketch every two weeks - Use the sketch the first week to create a 'girly' card. The second week you create a masculine card using the same sketch.  I can already tell that this one will be fun!

Here is the sketch:

Here is my card for the 'girly' week!

The papers are from the new Chantilly (X7163B) paper pack that will be available February 1.  I used two brand new stamps set that will be released then also.  The frame, which coordinates with the Artiste Cricut Cartridge, is from the set Frame Flair (D1548).  The sentiment is from Joyful Birthday (B1419).  This set has four different styles of "Happy Birthday".  LOVE IT!  I stamped the frame in Cotton Candy ink and the sentiment in Pear.  Finding coordinating ribbon was very easy.  I sponged pear ink onto Color Ready Seam Binding Ribbon (Z1732) to get a perfect match!  A few sparkles from Sparkles Clear Assortment (Z1752) and Bitty Sparkles (Z1263) add the finishing touch!

The paper and new stamps will be available on February 1 when our new Spring Summer Idea Book will be released!   If you would like more information about Close To My Heart products, or becoming a Close To My Heart Consultant, please contact me!

Thanks for stopping by!  Stay tuned!  
I'm headed back to my craft room for some more creating time!
