April's Stamp of the Month..."My Sunshine"

Welcome to the CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!
April 2013's Stamp of the Month is called.....
****My Sunshine****

The blog hop makes a circle so if you are starting here just continue until you make your way back and you will have made it through them all.  If you have already started and are coming from Vicki Price's blog, "The Price of Paper"then you are on the right track.

For my card, I was inspired by both the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  However, in all honesty, this stamp set is pretty inspirational on it's own.  In fact, it's probably my favorite set of all the SOTM's offered in the Spring/Summer 2013 Close To My Heart idea book.  
I'm submitting this card to Catered Crop.  
 Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Papers:  Clementine, Buttercup CSWhite Daisy CS
Stamps Used: My Sunshine
Inks: Buttercup, Creme Brulee, Honey, Goldrush, Twilight
Embellishments: Harvest Baker's Twine, Paradise Baker's Twine, Silver Shimmer Trim, Coral and Cracked Corn Mini Mosaics (Suze Weinberg)
Here's a look at the entire stamp set...

...and here's the sketch I used.

Remember, if you love what you've seen so far along your SOTM Blog Hop journey, and you want your own "My Sunshine" stamp set or want to get it for the amazingly low price of $5, be sure to contact your Close To My Heart Independent Consultant.  If you don't already have a consultant, I'd love to be yours.  You can find details on the "Stamp of the Month" by clicking on the "Promotions" tab at the top of the page or purchase your SOTM here.  Of course, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
