The paper used to make the sunburst card shown above is one of several items that are available for purchase in August as a "sneak peak" into the new CTMH Annual Inspirations Idea Book, out on September 1. I have a whole list of what is included in this sneak peak on the CTMH page of this blog.  Pop over and take a look!

Crazy 4 Challenge 297 - HAPPY!

I've wanted to make a sunburst card for quite some time, but never took the time to investigate the process.  I'm so glad I finally did!  I wanted to showcase all 6 patterns of the new Zoe paper pack from CTMH, and this design was perfect (check out the CTMH page of this blog for more info on Zoe).  This week over at Crazy 4 Challenges, they are celebrating "Admit You're Happy Month".  Who knew such a month even existed?  But the "Happy" in the Happy Birthday sentiment qualifies it for the challenge, so I'm in.

Speaking of that sentiment, the label and the sentiment are both from the August Stamp of the Month - FRAMED.  There are a number of sentiments and frames on this great set - mix and match as you please.  You can see more about it if you head over to my CTMH website.

There's one more new product on this card - the coral shimmer trim.  It is perfect with the colors from Zoe.  I also used coral and sweet leaf inks as well as coral, sweet leaf and white daisy cardstock.  I put the sweet leaf strip through the dots embossing folder.  I  wanted to bring some texture to the bottom part of the card.

This card will be a part of my August Stamp Club classes.  There's still room, so check out the information in the post on my home page or see all the card photos on the Stamp Club page of this blog!
