Jubilation - CTMH June SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the June Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. These months just keep flying by so quickly.

If you've come here from Wanda's Blog, you're on the right track. However, if you just happened upon my blog, you can follow the Blog Hop right from here. You will make your rounds and when you return to mine, you know you've seen them all.
If you get lost along the way, the entire list can be found here on Kathleen's Blog.

This month's SOTM is called Jubilation and consists of 24 Clear Stamps.

For my card, I used the Fanfare paper pack. I needed a card for my son's birthday in July so I used this set for it.

I stamped the word celebrate all over the background paper, most of it in the stars. Then I made two pleted flowers with the paper and added the fireworks on top.

I used the medium blue sparkles and also the tiny clear bitty sparkles.  However, the blue sparkles don't look like they are all the same color, but they are. It's the way the picture was taken.
The Hand Stitching around the card was done with matching Cranberry Embroidery Floss. The Happy BIrthday is from another Birthday Set.

The design of the card was inspited by a sketch from Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge Blog.

Now hop on over to Sarah's Blog and see what beautiful creation she has to show you.

LOVE IT! Question for you...do you use a template for piercing your holes for stitching, or have you just done it so long that you have a feel for where they go? I wanted to do stitching on my card this month and couldn't get the placement right...so have to ask the EXPERT!

Beautiful work as always!

I really love your card! I just learned how to do that fan fold flower. Adds a nice 3D texture to cards. Glad to be a new follower! Come visit me sometime:-)
