We will be featuring November's SOTM, which is "Cherish the Day S1111", a set of 44 stamps.

If you have come here from C

This month we have 57 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM 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 one!
Here we go!
My wonderful sister's birthday is on December 12th so I decided to make her a birthday card, where I can safely put a gift card and have a little piece of my creation go with on her purse, jacket or hair. I folded the tab on the card towards the inside, glued down the sides to form a pocket for the gift card.
I used the Art Philosophy Cartridge for the flower, by cutting out four flowers at 2", 2 1/2", 3" and 3 1/2". Stamped the December image on the flowers with Versa Mark and embossed them with gold embossing powder.
