March CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop: Floral Happiness

Can you believe that it's already time for our monthly Close To My Heart stamp of the month blog hop?  CTMH has us thinking spring with the pretty Floral Happiness stamp set!  If you'd like to see all the fabulous creations, then visit the amazing Adeline's blog next by clicking her name.  (If you're visiting here along the hop, then you should have arrived from my Heart 2 Heart challenges design team member Melinda's blog.)
My first project was inspired by my daughter's new shirt (that she bought with Christmas $$), but it hasn't been warm enough yet to wear it!  (I will repost the layout once I get somebound-to-be-darling pictures of her in it.)  This layout pattern is from the Make It From Your Heart how-to guide.
These colors are a little out of my comfort zone, but they do work well together.  Here's the inspiration shirt:
The colors I used are Buttercup, Sunset, Hollyhock, Lagoon, and Outdoor Denim.  I random stamped the largest rose in all of the colors.  On the two Hollyhock squares, I random stamped the tiniest rose in Hollyhock on Hollyhock.  I stamped the sentiments with Outdoor Denim.  The papers I used from both the Claire and Chantilly collections.  Of course I had to add some of the Claire floral embellishments.  They are so pretty.  The coolest element to me is the Hollyhock zipper ribbon!
 
 
My second project is very toned down compared to the layout! ;)  Heart 2 Heart Challenges is sponsoring a CAS (clean and simple) challenge right now, so I used Outdoor Denim and Hollyhock to create this CAS card. (You have until Saturday 3/2 @ midnight to play along with any of the H2H February challenges, and you are definitely going to want to check out our H2H March Madness!)
 
Thanks for hanging out with me for a bit!  I hope you like my crazy Old Navy-inspired color combo!  Now, hop on over to Adeline's blog!

Very clever layout - can't wait to see the pictures to go with it! I was working on a clean and simple card design as well but alas I got somewhat carried away..I guess i will have to try again!.
