Floral Happiness - March Stamp of the Month

Welcome to the Close to my Heart March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. There are 58 consultants this month with fabulous artwork to share with you. So, come and hop along with us. Just click on the next persons link at the end of this post and continue along.

We'd all love it if you you'd leave us each a comment so we know how we're doing.

If you've come here from Michelle's blog then you are on the right path. If you've just happened upon my blog, you can continue from here. The hop is one big loop.

The design of my card today started with a sketch challenge from Stamp with Fun.

I used a New paper pack called Chantilly. This paper pack also has matching fabric, which I used to make a ruffle around the rose image. 
I cut a butterfly from the Close to my Heart exclusive cricut cartridge "Art Philosophy". I stamped on the butterfly the Love Doily image in Twilight ink. I need a birthday card so I chose to use the Birthday greetings from the Just a Number stamp set.

The body of the butterfly and the lower corners are adorned with Pink Glitter Gems.
 I also added a few dots of Pink Glitz Glitter Gel to the center of the rose.

I did a bit of hand stitching with matching buttercup embroidery floss.

Easter Wishes

My card today is one of my club cards for this month. Easter is Early this year so I needed to create Easter cards this month already.
I used the NEW Close to my Heart stamp set called Easter Wishes along with a NEW paper pack called Chantilly.

The images were colored in with our new Alcohol markers. The Sentiment tag is tied on with Bakers Twine from the Paradise collection.

As a finishing touch, I added a few little googly eyes.
