CTMH May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

April showers bring May stamps of the month! Close To My Heart is introducing the versatile stamp set, Cherish the Moments, this month. Come check out all the darling ideas with this set of 8 stamps with our monthly stamp of the month blog hop. (You're hopping right along if you're visiting from from Lori's blog. Head to Jody's next!)

For my top-fold standard-size card, I used the Wishes "File Pocket" pattern. I had to use my new Cherry-O Creative Basics paper pack (plus some card stock from my stash). I first stamped the Happy Birthday stamp in Chocolate ink on a piece of Colonial White card stock. I highlighted the "Happy Birthday" sentiment with a little light blue chalk and the "Cheers" with some Sweet Leaf chalk. Do you like how I used a Tulip Just Bloom as my file folder tab? I used a Tulip mini brad for the sentiment also.

I tucked the "Happy" tag into my pocket after decorating the front with B&T from the Creative Basics pack. It even includes this gorgeous Cranberry velvet ribbon! (The Tulip brads and Colonial White twill are also from my stash.) I think layering my ribbon also qualifies me for this week's Heart 2 Heart challenge (to use at least 2 different ribbons).

Thanks for looking at my card. I hope you like it! Now, remember to hop on over to Jody's blog and leave her a little lovin'!
