CTMH's Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for July!

Welcome to the Close to My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for July - featuring the ADORABLE stamp set "Happy Forever"! Along the hop you'll find dozens of fabulous creations using this stamp set - all brought to you by a very talented group of CTMH Consultants! If you've come here from Kristie's Blog, you are on the right path. If this is your first stop on the hop, that will work too (just keep hopping till you get back here again)!

To continue along the hop, just follow the link at the end of each post to go to the next site. We hope that following the hop will give you lots of inspiration and ideas for using your "Happy Forever" stamp set, as well as the many other great CTMH products you'll see in each post.
My creation for you today is a standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card.  This sentiment is very versatile - could be used for birthdays, etc. or just to cheer up a friend!   I coloured my cute little hedgehog and his butterfly using my CTMH ink pads and my Blending Pen.  I sponged the outer edges of the circle in a coordinating ink to give the card some added dimension.  And the whole scalloped circle and image portion of the card are lifted using our Foam Tape.

Materials Used (all Close to My Heart):
July 2010 Stamp of the Month - Happy Forever
Cardstock: Blush, Vineyard Berry, Colonial White
Inks: Chocolate, Vineyard Berry, Blush
