This month we have 15 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using the exclusive From the Heart card kit and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next on!  Here we go!  

I decided to combine the SOTM "Feel so Blessed" with the "From the Heart" Kit.  Lots of different stamps fit with the base cards as well as using the "From the Heart" stamp set with other not so interactive cards.
I love the gold embossing and decided the last minute to add some gold from the shimmer brush to the center of the flowers.  Well, I shook the pen and then noticed an obvious splatter on the sentiment, so I deliberately splattered more to make it look "intentional"  haha - well, I do know someone who will enjoy the extra bling - the card isn't a total loss. Lesson learned: protect your work when prepping the shimmer pen!
I also used thistle ink, bashful and fern on the top of the card.  
Inside the card I used watercolor with Gold Glitter Gems.  
Now "Hop" on over to Michelle Loncar's blog to see her work!  Be sure to visit all the consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting ideas!  To get any of the products you see, contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here)
