Mason Jar Birthday Wishes

Hello everyone!  Just thought I would pop on to share a card with you that I made for a dear friend of mine for her birthday.  This card was made exclusively from Close to My Heart products or products available from them, except for the vellum and sequins.  As some of you may know, for the past several years I have been a part of the CTMH team.  This is my farewell card.  Sadly, March 31st was my last day as a consultant.  Simply put, I just don't have the time to devote to the business side any more.  I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as a consultant, made a lot of new friends, and had my eyes opened to this wonderful world of cardmaking and scrapbooking.  Enough of the sad stuff, on to the good stuff....

This card was a bit hard to photograph because it was so soft in color.   It really is much more defined in person.    I used CTMH watercolor paper and heat embossed my design with white embossing powder.  I even used CTMH watercolors.  The sentiment was embossed on some 40lb vellum, which I fussy cut and then adhered to the card front.  I thought it turned out very soft and sweet.

That's it for me today.  I'll be entering this card in a few challenges which I will list below, along with the supplies I used.   Thanks for stopping by!
