CTMH NEW PRODUCT BLOG HOP ROUND #2 - {Hope your Birthday's as Sweet as You}

Have you had the chance to peek at the new CTMH Spring/Summer 2014 Idea Book yet? Are you looking for inspiration?

Well, I am excited again to be participating in the CTMH New Product Blog Hop. Join me and other CTMH consultants as we share our creations with new product from the Spring/Summer Idea Book & Catalog. Welcome & enjoy!

A few weeks ago I hosted an Open House Launch Party to showcase some of the new products. Plus, there was yummy drinks & eats, especially if you have a sweet tooth like me!  And, who doesn't love to make somethin' {pretty}?  Well, we always create one make n' take or sometimes two, which I share with you here.  But this time around, I decided to wait and share it during this hop!

As Balloon Ride is my fave paper packet, I could not resist to grab a sheet of pattern paper to create with. I then added two strips of solid cardstock, sunset and chocolate, both stamped with background stamps for added dimension.  And last, the extra decorative strip along each sheet of pattern paper is perfect for this project!  To add a bit of flair, I cut each strip at either end and slightly layered each at different heights.  The strips are mounted on a sheet of solid cardstock and then adhered on the card base.  Add a sentiment on a piece of cardstock, pop it up with 3-D foam tape and voilà!!

Thanks for stopping in!  Now, hop on over to check out the other fabulous artwork (March 3th - 8th).
