Close to My Heart February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close to My Heart February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We are featuring the February Stamp of the Month, Friendship, a set of 8 stamps, that is only available during the month of February.

If you have arrived from Jen Rubio's Blog you are on the right path.  This month we have over 65 Close to My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using the February Stamp of the Month and other great Close to My Heart products on their blogs.  Following the Blog Hop is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one.  So, here we go!

This is my card!  I made a recessed card using the new Bliss paper pack and the new Bliss Level 2 embellishments.  Can you see that the verse is indented or recessed in the frame?  I hate to toot my own horn, but I just love this card.  It came out so pretty and was easy to make because all of the papers are color coordinated and now even the embellishments match their particular paper pack.
 Here is another view.  Can you see that I even decorated the inside of the card?
