I Just Love the Holidays - Holiday Expressions New Product Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close to My Heart 
Holiday Expressions New Product Blog Hop! 

This hop I am following {Melissa Robinson's Blog.}   We have 23 Close to My Heart Consultants participating in this Holiday Expressions New Product Blog Hop. If you lose your place while traveling through our blog hop, the complete list of participants can be found here.      

I was trying to decide what holiday I wanted to feature.  All of the paper lines in this catalog are fantastic.  I just finished holding a scrapbooking retreat and made Sugar Skull name tags so I decided to use the Sugar Skull again and made a card using our new Cats and Bats product line.  I love the vibrant colors.

So here is my card.

I used lots and lots of 3-D foam tape.  You can see how it is popped up in this picture.  The "Celebrate" comes from the Cats and Bats Complements and I added some Cats and Bats Dots to finish the card off.

I found a wonderful blog with the starburst file and decided to try it with the black background to make it pop!  Here's the link to that blog.  I may try and turn it into a Design Space file because I could use it again and again on other cards.

I am going to include the Cricut Design Space File for my Sugar Skull card for your use.  You will need the Cricut Flower Market cartridge in order to cut it.

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I would love for you to show me a little love by leaving me a comment and then please go to our next artist, {Wendy Kessler's Blog} and see what she has made with this adorable stamp set.

You can purchase any of the supplies used in my artwork on my website.
