Here we go!

Maybe you can relate....when a new book comes out, you start paging through it - lovingly, viewing all of the NEW goodies!!  AND of those 4 paper packs, seems to "catch your eye"...

Today I'll be sharing one of the NEWEST paper collections to catch my eye - the No Worries paper collection from Close To My Heart. 

Here is the card I created, and then we'll talk about some of the FABULOUS details of this NEW paper collection!  :)  

I used a NEW stamp set from the SE 2 mini-book....actually, I chose to purchase the BUNDLE of this stamp.  That means the stamp set AND the coordinating "Thin Cuts" (metal dies) are all together in ONE fabulous package called No Worries - Scrapbooking....take a look. 

  The price for the stamp is is ONLY $17.95 .....AND....the price for the BUNDLE (stamp set & metal dies) is ONLY $30.95!!  A GREAT deal!! 

I wanted the cruise ship to look "real" and like it was actually in the out came my xacto knife to cut those waves, so I could "tuck in" the ship behind the waves :). 

The photo didn't quite capture it - but I did use the CLEAR shimmer brush on the smoke of the ship too! (click on photo to enlarge) 

I also wanted the "Relax" to pop, and chose to clear emboss the Sapphire ink to give it a shine....and I was in a "fussy cutting" out came my xacto knife again to cut out those beautiful words - Relax. :) 

The coordinating sapphire baker's twine from the Enchantment Fundamentals ribbon pack, , gold sequins & gray enamel dots, helped to finish off the card.
