Today I would like to share with you my project which features the Celebrate with Cake—May Stamp of the Month available exclusively throughout April 2016 for $27 or for just $7.50 when you spend $75. 

I am busily creating cards and paper-crafts to sell at the Fete at my kids school tomorrow so I didn't have much time to create something new with this lovely cakey stamp. So I'm posting this card I created for our ten fold swap at our consultant Fun Day at my Upline's house. Using the 5 1/2" X 4 1/4" White Cards & Envelopes, Value Pack.

Its such a simple card with Black Exclusive Inks™ and I coloured the outlines in with two pens (shown below).  
 The side card strip is 1 inch by 5.5 inches of  Kaleidoscope Paper Packet and then a strip of Pink Shimmer TrimShimmer trim makes every card special with that extra Bling!

The colours I used were ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Marigold Marker and Leaf Green Marker. I think the flowers popped because I didn't colour them solidly, I left some white spaces around the edges of the petals. 

The below photos are from Close to My Heart head office. 

Remember this great stamp set  Celebrate with Cake—May Stamp of the Month is only available throughout May from my website or from your Close to My Heart Consultant
