Paper Trail May Blog Hop

Terri's blogWelcome to the Paper Trail blog hop! We are a group of Close To My Heart consultants working together to bring you cards, layouts, and other art featuring a different Close To My Heart paper packet each month. If you arrived here from Terri's blog you are on the right trail!
We are using the new CTMH Mayberry papers this month and below are my three cards. Each uses all CTMH product. I used chocolate, smoothie, olive and honey ink for the images and the distressing. I also used the CTMH stamp set from the May promotion You and Me, which is available beginning today. Check out my website for more details. I also used the kraft color ready self-adhesive borders. I just love this new product!!  So versatile. I wove some floss into the borders on the 1st card shown. On the last card shown I wove colonial white grosgrain ribbon through the holes. What a cool look. I also used some of the chipboard irresistibles from the You and Me May promotion on the first card. I used some mocha opaques on the cards as well.  Remember if you click on the picture itself it will bring up a larger view so you can see details of the card more easily.

 On this dress card I used the white daisy accents for the belt and flowers on the hem of the dress. There are some bitty sparkles on the neckline of the dress.
 This used the colors from Mayberry and a bunch of the kraft borders on the new CTMH kraft paper. I did distress the edges of them all first. I used the stamp set from the May promotion You and Me.
Thanks for stopping by, Now you are on your way to Betsy's blog.
