Sonoma Layout

I am submitting this layout to the challenge at for the birthday challenge.  I started to add lots more to it but let it sit overnight before I did.  When I came back to it, I decided I liked it just like it was.  There's so much pattern going on and by the time I add my photos, I think it would be too much to have lots of bling.  

I used the new Close To My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and stamps to create this  beauty; EVERY SHAPE was cut with the cartridge. All the stamping on the embellishments was done with the coordinating stamps and embossed in gold embossing powder. The squares were stamped using Dusty Plum ink and the Happy Journey stamp set. The papers are the gorgeous new Sonoma papers from CTMHI've been using these papers to make so many lovely projects and I plan to order more soon.

Hope you enjoy!
