BeYOUtiful Challenge

It's a BeYOUtiful week at Heart 2 Heart Challenges!

Close to My Heart has a GOR-GEOUS stamp set called Beautiful You, so it was the first thing to came to mind when I saw this challenge. But I used the stamp set for this card a couple of months ago and this one before that and both for H2H. So this time, I wanted to try and do something a little different than the "expected".

In deciding on a design for my card, I was inspired by all of the ideas I've been Pinning for my soon-to-be new "She Shed". I love anything shabby chic, French country, farm house, etc., which I'll be incorporating into my crafting space decor. Even though my husband hasn't been able to start working on it, due to all of the rain we've been getting, I figured I'd continue with my fave decor theme in my card design. I also used this sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch as my spring board.

Because I am currently so limited on crafting space, due to all my go-to supplies still in boxes from the last two crops and the chaos that ensues in preparing for them, I decided not to stamp and make my card completely in Cricut Design Space using the Flower Market collection from CTMH. Click on this link to make it for yourself.

So here is the final result and I LOVE how it turned out!

Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Papers: Kraft CS, White Daisy CS, Sweet Leaf CS, Bashful CS, Blossom CS, Glacier CS, Cocoa CS (retired), Black CS
Emellishments: Clear Sparkles
Other: Flower Market Cricut Cartridge, Microtip ScissorsBone Folder, 3D & Thin Foam Tape, Tombow Adhesive Runner, Glue Pen, Scoring Board (Martha Stewart)

We'd love to have you join us at Heart 2 Heart Challenges. Remember. Every Monday morning a new challenge is posted with the deadline to enter at midnight on the last day of the month or on the Saturday following the month's final challenge. The challenge varies from week to week and can be a color challenge, a sketch, an inspiration photo, a theme challenge, or something else. You can choose to play along every week, or just play along when the challenge moves you. The only requirement to play along is that CTMH products must be included in your submitted project, but it doesn't have to be 100% CTMH (and it doesn't have to be new product either).  

Again, my file is available for free. You just need to be able to access Cricut Design Space and cut...the designing is done for you.
And the sketch I used...
I hope to see you over at Heart 2 Heart Challenges!
