The January CTMH Spotlight Bloghop features Anything Valentine!

Welcome to the Close to My Heart January Spotlight Blog Hop!  If you have found yourself here from Nikka Geer's Blog then you are in the right place.  This month we are spotlighting anything Valentine's Day!  

Can you believe that in a month it will be Valentine's Day?  I just received my latest order from CTMH and as a Consultant,  I can order the new products a whole month earlier than customers can.  This is one of the perks for being a Consultant.  (Hint, Hint.......... I am looking for new team members and would love to talk to you if you think that you might want to become a Close to My Heart Consultant).  So, I just could not wait and had to use some of our awesome new products!!  Here is the card pattern that I used:

I have been waiting for that special card to use this pattern with.  I think that you will like how it shows off the paper and the embellishments.  Here is my card.

There is so much to tell you about this card.  Check out the circle that the black heart is sitting on. It is our White Daisy cardstock.  I used our new spray pen, filling it with rubbing alcohol and Tulip reinker and sprayed the cardstock.  It leaves a really cool pattern and doesn't take long to dry at all.  The black heart is from one of our new embellishments called Sweetheart Level 2 Epoxy Stickers.  I just love the pleated ribbon that CTMH now sells.  All I have to do is cut off how much I need and adhere it to my card with my tape runner.  Do you notice the cute little brads at the bottom of the card?  They look like buttons and are darling.  You can find them in the Mini Medleys - Black assortment.  All the stamp sets are new as is the paper pack so look below to find out the names of these new products.
