end of June... already!

I am in shock at how fast this month flew by. It must be because we have a newborn at home.

A new month brings a new Stamp of the Month to CTMH and you'll want to check back tomorrow to see the CTMH consultant blog hop where we"ll all be putting our own projects using the stamp of the month on display!

For today- here's another swap card I mailed off last week. I have a LOT of sheets of one of the Paper Garden Level 1 scrapbook pages left and made myself use some on both this card and the one posted last week. Each card focuses on different colors for different looks.
{supplies: Flower Child Stamp Set, Blush and Colonial White cardstock, Paper Garden Level 1 pack, Daydream Level 2, Colonial White crochet ribbon, Blush eyelets, Bamboo, Blush and Black ink pads, CTMH markers(Blush, Baby Pink, Bamboo, Sweet Leaf and Vanilla cream)
To color: The petals were first colored with vanilla Cream, then over the top with Baby Pink and some highlighting done with Blush. For the flowers center- I first colored with Bamboo and then over the top with Blush. When using the CTMH markers- it looks much better if you don't color back and forth as the paper can "pill" so I use a small circular motion and don't over color if that makes sense?
Don't forget to stop back tomorrow for the blog hop! P.s. TODAY IS THE LAST DAY OF THE JUNE DEAL A DAY SPECIAL- it is supposed to be a Goodie Box with 50% or more in savings off regular cost. Visit my website here after 11am EST to order yours!
