Close to My Heart Seasonal Expressions 1 Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close to My Heart Seasonal Expressions 1 Blog Hop! 

 I am following {Donna Digby's Blog.}   We have over 35 Close to My Heart Consultants participating in our Close to My Heart Seasonal Expressions 1 Blog Hop.   If you lose your place while traveling through our blog hop, the complete list of participants can be found here.    

Here is my card.

I have used our super adorable Hopscotch Paper Pack from the Seasonal Expressions 1 catalog.  The stamp set is called Rain or Shine (D1634).  Did you know that we now have WHITE Shimmer Trim?  Oh the possibilities!  I am in love!!!  It adds a little bit of elegance to my card, I do believe.

My husband picked up my card and asked about the writing behind the stamped images.  This piece of patterned paper is actually an old dress pattern.  I find that makes my cards less flat when the stamped images are stamped on patterned paper with a faint design.

Close to My Heart's patterned paper is so beautiful that you don't miss the embellishments.  The only embellishment on my card is the White Shimmer trim.                

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I would love for you to leave me a comment and then please go to our next artist, {Melissa Robinson's Blog.}

    1. Thank you all for the kind comments. This is an easy card to make. It came together from design to finish in about an hour. The drops falling through the frames was when I was playing and enjoying the creative process.
