New Product Blog Hop!

Welcome to the 2014 New Product Blog Hop!  We will be featuring new products from the recently released Annual Inspirations Idea Book!  If you have came here from Kathleen's Blog, you are on the right path.  The blog hop is a great big circle, you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find a complete list of participating consultants here. My card was created with the fabulous new Seaside Paper line and the new Seaside Greetings Stamp Set.

My card is based on the great sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  I of course had to add a few layers...

Design Tip:Want your brads to line up perfectly? Simply pierce your holes with the Stitch Guide.  While the ruler is designed for stitching, the clear design allows for perfect placement of your brads as well. 

All supplies by Close To My Heart:
D1609 Seaside Greetings Stamp Set 
B1419 Joyful Birthday
X7192B Seaside Paper Packet
Z2118 Desert Sand Ink
Z2165 Juniper Ink
Z1852 Stitch Guide

I have also entered my card in the following challenges:
