Welcome to the Simply Inspired Close To My Heart Blog Hop!



This month we are highlighting Skylark paper because that is the paper in the new Consultant Kit!  If you've come here from the lovely and creative Pamela's blog, you are on the right path!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you'll find the complete list of participating consultants here.



You might think of the more neutral colors when you think of Skylark.  But I've taken out the two Lagoon patterns  to work with - they are my favorite!!  (The desert sand pattern in the background is also from Skylark.)  This card, belly band, and dress/dress form were cut with the Artiste cartridge using key "Q".  One of the reasons I LOVE Close To My Heart is that I can sit down with some papers and there are accessories to match perfectly!  On this card, I've chose to use a flower from the Skylark Assortment,  Teal Shimmer Trim, Lagoon Zipper Lace, a Sparkle Flourish, and a little bit of the Skylark Textiles.  This stamp - which is a great match for this card! - is from the April Stamp of the Month, Balloon Talk.

Now it's time to hop on over to Michelle's blog to see what she made for you out of Skylark.  Be sure to follow the circle to be inspired in the many ways you can use your folders!
