Just Sayin' - May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our Blog Hop featuring Close To My Heart's May Stamp of the Month, "Just Sayin'"!  There are almost 70 of us showcasing our creations with this fun stamp set.  Did you know you can purchasing it during the month of May for just $5 with a $50 purchase?!  It's true, you can and it is valued at $17.95!
If you have come from Michelle's Blog, you are on the right track!  You can find a complete listing of participants, should you get lost along the way, at Melinda's Blog.
I had fun creating this card using three of the images in the stamp set.  I random-stamped the circle, in Lagoon ink, on Glacier cardstock.  On the piece of Smoothie cardstock, I scored it on our awesome Score Board, used the distressing tool to expose the white core of our paper, and then stamped the dove-tailed, washi-like image in Smoothie ink in between them.

A small strip of Canary cardstock, with some hand-drawn stitches, a strip of White Shimmer Trim, and a few white Sequins finished it off nicely.  I especially love the color combo for this card and hope you do too.

Thank you for stopping by and please consider leaving a comment before heading over to Wendy's Blog.

Happy hoppin'!
