Welcome to the Joyful Stars blog hop.......Every month we share what we have been working on and the great Close To My Heart products we carry and love using.  Simply look for the highlighted name at the bottom of each post and hop to the next blog and enjoy the great ideas.  We hope to inspire you to create.

This month I would like to share with you........................ My Hawaiian Hibiscus card.  B1527 Pg 31 in the Seasonal Expressions.  I used a pop up card fold for this card.  Start with a base of 5 1/2x 8 and score at 2,3, 5,6"
The striped side pieces are 1 3/4x 5 and the circle cut with Art Philosophy at 3 1/4" white and 3 1/2" red.  Red shimmer trim was added top and bottom.  I water colored the center with blue and colored the flowers with markers and water color. 
It's always nice to stamp the envelope to match the card.  

Now hop to my friend Debi (she's always creating great stuff)
