Seasonal Expressions 1 Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close to My Heart Consultants Seasonal Expressions 1 Blog Hop!  There are 26 consultants sharing artwork from this new Close to My Heart catalog. If you are coming from Stefanie Ewing's blog you are on the right track. If you get lost along the way you can visit Melinda Everitt's blog here.

Have you seen the new Seasonal Expressions 1 Idea Book yet?  You'll find fabulous seasonal paper pack collections for your late winter and spring crafting.  

I created this birthday card for a very special niece who is celebrating her 18th birthday. When she was much younger she loved everything "ladybug".  

Close to My Heart products used:
     Uptown Fundamentals paper (black pattern and gold foil vellum)
     Dreaming Big stamp and Thin Cut Die (ladybug)
     One in a Million stamp
     White Daisy CS
     Pomegranate CS
     Pomegranate Ink
     Black Shin Han Touch Marker
     Gold Metallic Marker--borders white sentiment  panel

Other product:
     Thin craft foam die cut to pop up ladybugs

My card was inspired by this Try Stampin' on Tuesday card sketch:

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
      Seize the Birthday--Anything Goes
      Sunny Day Crafting--Anything Goes or Disney
      Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge--New Something (new stamps)

The next stop on this blog hop tour is Cat Nowak.  I'm sure you'll be delighted by what she has to share!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
