"Make It Shine" Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to this month's Technique Blog Hop where we are using Close To My Heart products to create artwork aligned with the theme, "Make It Shine". 

If you are coming from Darlys's Blog, you are on the right track. Should you get lost along the way, you will find a complete list of participants at the bottom of this post.

With this month's theme, who can resist incorporating Glitter Paper to make your artwork shine? I couldn't. AND, it was a must I use the beautiful, and NEW, Wild Berry color. I absolutely love it! 

To add some flair, I added Silver and Flamingo Shimmer Trim, as well as some Wild Berry Sequins. This card design is from Volume 5 of Make It From You Heart. I love its simplicity and couldn't resist adding in this embossed sentiment from "All Star Birthday". (It's wonderful for a Shaker card.)

Katy is sure to wow you with her creation. Head over to Scrappin' Katy and then keep making your way around the Blog Hoopto view what all participants have to share with you. We appreciate you doing so. Please consider leaving a comment as we love to hear from you.
