June Stamp of the Month blog hop...

Well... it's the start of another month... which means it's blog hop time!!  If you came from Debra's blog you are headed in the right direction- but if you are just starting out- that is fine too... the next blog in the circle is posted at the bottom of this post.

This month's set is fun to work with... and I think it would be perfect to use on an event calendar... unfortunately I didn't have that kind of time when working on my project so I made a card instead... but If I can fit an event calendar into my crafting schedule this month- I'll post it here!!
For now... this card will have to do.  I used the green patterned paper from the Wings Level 2 kit and the floral paper from the Sweetheart Level 2 pack.
I stamped the flower from the Jubillee set (June Stamp of the Month) in hollyhock ink.

Not sure if you can tell but the white paper flower is totally covered in glitz glitter gel (a great deal at $2.75!) and used a retired Twinkle brad.
The "Celebrate" is also random stamped around the flowers- in desert Sand ink to match the background paper.

I have a birthday coming up that I will use this card for... so it's just in time!

The next blog in the hop is:  Michelle.

Thanks for looking- now go check out the rest of the great artwork!
