The Close To My Heart paper I am focusing on this month for my card group is Claire.  I love the stripes and anything with outdoor denim is a fav for me.  Both cards we will make tomorrow are based on sketches - the first one is from the Deconstructed Sketch used here (which won the Cards in Envy challenge that week). The bow was cut from Outdoor Denim card stock using Cricut Artiste @ 3/4" fastened with a Sunset brad.  The sentiment piece and Hollyhock matt were cut with Nestabilities. There are many CTMH sentiments that fit this piece, so the gals tomorrow can choose one that meets their card needs. I used A Blossom set for the flowers behind the sentiment.

This card uses a Verve Sketch, and I made it on a 4.25" square White Daisy base.  The sentiment is from a new CTMH set Scrapbook Sentiments-Poets. I just love this set!  The little flower was cut from Blush card stock at 1 3/4" Cricut Artiste, and brushed with Hollyhock ink; the circle is 4" and ovals #2 both cut on Cricut using the Art & Philosophy cartridge. I added an Opaque to the flower center and three tiny pearls scattered on the sentiment.

I hope the gals like these as much as I do. This paper is super easy to work with- just LOVE it!!
