Chantilly Love.... such a fun new paper pack

Good Morning!!

February has come and is going by so quickly and I haven't been on my blog nearly enough.... basketball season can do that to a Momma of 4 boys! I love stamping and scrapping but I do love spending time on the kiddos too. But now that I have a breather I was determined to get online and share some artwork with you guys. 

I have been playing with all the new product the Close To My Heart just released, and I started with the Chantilly papers and stamps. I really enjoyed the bright and fresh colors that CTMH coordinated in this kit. I made an extremely girlie card as well as a fun birthday card that could go for either a boy or girl. The reason is the wide range of colors found in the papers:
  • buttercup
  • cotton candy
  • pear
  • ruby
  • sunset
  • twilight
  • champagne

 For this card, I used the rich Ruby papers and ink, coordinated with some pink waxy flax and a button from the Pink Assortment back. 

    But then I decided to pull in the bright pink of the cotton candy and the new Pink Glitter Gems. I think the card has an entirely different feel just because of the color difference. 

    And here is a close up the focal point accent...it is simply a flower cut from the B&TP and then glittered with the Stardust Glitz Gel. Easy Peasy! I will post the Happy Birthday card tomorrow. As always, feel free to contact me with any questions. 
    With a smile~ Tina
