Here is the card I created for today…

The NEW Fundamentals papers are beautiful & can be used for so many things!  The Fundamentals come in our Enchantment, Adventure, Whimsy & Basic color palette!!   

Here’s a close up look at the WHIMSY collection that I used on this card. I also used Slate & Canary cardstock.

This card was basically a Cricut card...using the NEW Flower Market Cricut Cartridge!!  Have you checked out this NEW cartridge yet?  

I used the sailboat on page 8 of this booklet, and the star border is found on pg. 37.

Click on the Flower Market booklet below to go see all 700 images that are INCLUDED on this "tiny, bitty" AMAZING cartridge. 

Let’s take a closer look at the card…

Do you see the shimmer??  

I used the NEW SEA GLASS glitter paper!  I am so AMAZED at how well our 12x12 glitter paper cuts with the Cricut machine!  AND...the glitter paper barely "flakes" off glitter either!  I've been very impressed with this product!

The flag was cut with the glitter paper...and then can you see the star? 

Look closely to see that I added some extra "shine" to the star with our NEW "Shimmer Brush"....a GREAT way to add slight sparkle to any of your projects!  

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you were inspired to ready to go CREATE something on your own! 

Now it’s time to Hop on over to Marie’s  blog and see what beautiful, crafty item she has to share with us!  

Happy Hopping and we’ll see you on the 9th next month, when the Joyful Stars team members will be sharing more artwork using Close To My Heart products!    

Blessings to you for BEAUTIFUL day!!!
