Potential - March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop





Well, another month has rolled around and it's time for the Close to my Heart March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. This month's stamp set is called Potential.

If you've come here from Annette's Blog, you are on the right path. If you just happened upon my blog, you can just continue from here because it just goes in a complete circle.

For my card, I used the Elemental Paper Pack in the colors of Olive and Sorbet.
The three layers of circles and the butterfly were all cut out using the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge
I cut a piece of our white bakers Twine and ran it through the Sorbet Ink Pad to make it match.
I cut the "is possible" from the stamp and curved it on the block under the word "Anything".  I also added a bit of hand stitching around the sentiment with matching embroidery floss.

You can pick up this stamp set one of two ways.
You can buy it outright for $17.95 or, the best value is to place a $50 order and get it for only $5.00. 
This stamp set is only available until March 31, 2012. Visit my website to order.


Now hop on over to Amy's Blog and see what fabulous artwork she has to show you.

The sketch that inspired this card is from Inspirational Card Sketches

Just like I said on my blog, I knew it would be fabulous and your card certainly is. I love the Elemental papers with this stamp. I wouldn't have thought to put those together, but you worked your magic. Lovely!
