Live Beautifully (National Scrapbooking Month)

Welcome to our Live Beautifully Blog Hop, brought to you by the same ladies who participate in the monthly Stamp-of-the-Month Blog Hop.  Since May is National Scrapbooking Month, CTMH is offering a special Live Beautifully set of papers and coordinating stamp set.  And our group of creative bloggers have created an assortment of projects to inspire you.       

If you arrived here from Evergreen Memories, you are hopping through our circle of Close To My Heart consultants sharing their projects using the Live Beautifully collection. 
The National Scrapbooking Month Live Beautifully collection includes a great assortment of papers, including colorful flowers, basic stripes, and even gold-embossed patterns.  For this card, I was inspired by the simple black, white, and gold to create a pretty "thank you" card for someone special. You can actually see the sheen of the gold-embossed flower paper on the lower portion of the card.  The sentiment is from All the Thanks stamp set.  A black & gold ribbon from the Uptown Ribbon Pack was a perfect complement to the papers.  And just a bit of shimmer was added with a rectangle of White Glitter Paper behind the sentiment.   



Please visit the Heartfelt Sentiments blog to continue along our Live Beautifully Blog Hop


If you get lost along the way, the complete list of participants is available on Melinda's 'If You Bling It' blog.   



All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).

    1. My first thought was to use gold glitter paper, but don't have that color.
