CTMH Bring Back My Pack — Brushed Blog Hop

Welcome to the Bring Back My Pack — Brushed Blog Hop featuring anything from the Brushed Collection! This is a special hop from the group that brings you the SOTM Blog Hops. On our Brushed blog hop we have almost 20 participating bloggers. If you just happened upon my post, clicking the link to the next blog (typically found near the bottom of the page) will take you full circle.

Bring Back My Pack — Brushed Blog Hop
If you are arriving from ***Jennifer Rubio's Stamp with Jen*** then you are on the right track; a complete list of participants can be found at Melinda Everitt's If You Bling It.

I used paper I had left from the Brushed paper packet that was originally in Annual Inspirations 2014-2015 which was valid August 1, 2014 through August 31, 2015. My card was based on Pattern 22 on page 43 of Make It from Your Heart™ Volume 1.

I did not have a very large piece of Brushed left, so create the rosette I random stamped butterflies on a piece of White Daisy then I cut the image from Art Philosophy using the Maker. The rosette image was cut at ¾" so it was a bit difficult to create, but I think it is perfect on this card (if I do say so myself). To make the rosette stand out from the background a bit, I used Black cardstock to create a mat behind it.

Before you head to your next stop on the Bring Back My Pack — Brushed Blog Hop, ***Katy Taylor's An Inside to My scrap at a time***, the products I used to create the card are listed below.

All supplies are from Close To My Heart except where noted:
UPDATED - this link will give you access to my Design Space Project; you will need Art Philosophy and Artiste linked to our Cricut® account or will will need to purchase the images; I mocked up the entire card in Design Space, but only cut the rosette, the Black circle behind the rosette and the banner (Canary and Black) using the Maker
