Stamp of the Month Blog Hop: Family Time

Welcome to the November Close To My Heart stamp of the month blog hop featuring Family Time!  (If you're already hopping, then you've probably arrived from the creative Miss Carrie's blog.  From here, you'll visit Kristine next.)
For my card, I was challenged to use the Holly Jolly collection, but I'm not quite ready for Christmas!  I decided to focus on the blues and greens, so I stamped "Grateful" in new Green Apple ink, "for you" in Clover, and the flower and arrows in Glacier.  Adding the neutral Toffee lined petals and spray plus the Espresso flower center helped ground the entire card.  (I'd like to try this card again using Clover for "Grateful" and Candy Apple for the "for you" sentiment.  I'll post if I do!)

Adding the gold and white ribbon, gold shimmer gems, and Holly Jolly Dots finished off the card nicely (in my opinion).  I'm really glad that I added the ribbon.

This stamp set provides so many opportunities for crafting projects!  Please leave a comment before continuing the hop at Kristine's blog for more great ideas.
