New Product Blog Hop!

A group of over 50 CTMH consultants have gotten together to bring you a New Product Blog Hop.  This blog hop will feature creations made with items out of the New Fall/Winter 2012 Idea Book.  If you are coming here from Shirley's blog, you are on the right path. My card features the new Dakota Workshop On the Go kit and the Cricut Artiste Collection.  My card is based on the sketch this week at Mojo Monday-
It is round or square week.  I went with a 5" square card as my base. 

All of the shapes with the exception of the stars, were cut with the Artiste Collection.  The stars were cut with the Art Philosophy cartridge.  Once I cut the stars, I stamped the coordinating image on them and then scored down each center line.  I popped up the stars on my card to give more dimension. CASE Study is having a challenge to show your signature style this week.  I would say this is it.  Lot of layers and added dimension.  While I love CAS cards....I always tend to keep adding on more layers!  Continue on with the blog hop to Judy's blog!
