Did YOU KNOW???? 
May is National Scrapbooking Month....yes it is!! 

If you know Close To My Heart, you will remember that we LOVE to celebrate...and celebrating is what we are during in May 2018!!!

We have an EXCLUSIVE collection, only available in May, that is called "Postcard Perfect".  

This collection includes the following items...
(you can click on the photo to enlarge it. ;) )

Make SURE to check with your CTMH consultant and learn more about these beautiful items!!

So...back to our card...I used the Postcard Perfect Stamp set for this card. 

As soon as I saw this stamp set, those BEAUTIFUL palm trees captured my attention!! I KNEW I had to create something with this gorgeous image! :) 

This paper pack, is STUNNING as well!! I don't know if you can see it on the card, but the darker strip on the left side of the card, is the "wave" does have a FUN wave design to it & looks so pretty in person! :)

Here's a photo I took, where you can see that beautiful wave paper.  

If you look closely at the palm trees on this card, I hope you can see the bit of sparkle on the fronds.  I used our clear shimmer brush to add that shine!

Also - take a peek at the flower, I used the Bashful Shimmer brush to add some pink & some sparkle to the flower center!! 

The pink gems/dots...come from the NEW Documented collection.  The pack includes 3 colors - peacock, bashful & pretty!!

And...who noticed the "Stitched Circle"?  Yes - we have NEW Thin Cuts (metal dies)  ....and 3 of these collections are stitched shapes!! Wahoo!! 

Where did the "thank you" wording come from?  That is from a new stamp set - called Shell Sentiments...check it out!!  (and the 2nd stamp set is another favorite called "Aloha Spirit") 

That's all for today....thanks for stopping by, and I hope you were inspired to go CREATE something on your own! :) 

Now it’s time to Hop on over to Joyce'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!!!
