Close to My Heart May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. You may have found yourself here from Helen Onulak's Blog. We have 58 Close to My Heart Consultants participating in this month’s Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.
The May Stamp of the Month is entitled Friendship Bouquet (Set of 8). Such an elegant stamp set.
I absolutely love this stamp set.  When I opened the Spring/Summer Idea Book, this stamp set was the one that made me say WOW!  I am teaching myself to color with Copic Markers and decided to use them with this card.
I want to point out that the button used is from the Bohemian Collection in the current Idea Book.  The paper pack used is Florentine and I used the zip strip to decorate on either side of the blue patterned paper from Florentine.  I cut the piece of Colonial White paper used for the Sunflower with Close to My Heart's Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.

I am entering this card as well in the Heart 2 Heart Challenge.  Their challenge this week is to use flowers in our artwork.

Well, thank you for visiting my blog. Now you can head over to the next stop, Adeline Brill's Blog, and see what she has created for you!
This stamp set can be purchased or you can even get it for only $5 Between May 1 – May 31, 2012. If you do not have a Close to My Heart Consultant, you can purchase this stamp set on my website.
