Stamp of the Month Blog Hop -- March: Choose Happy

 Welcome to the February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

If you came from visiting Chris Robertson at Chris' Creative Life, then you are in the right place.  If you just happened upon my little corner of the blog world, simply start here and continue hopping until you return here -- our fun hop is one big loop for your viewing pleasure. 

The month's featured stamp set is S1503 Choose Happy (pictured below).  This set is only available until March 31st and is only $5 with a $50 Close to My Heart purchase.

For today's card, I used the card on page 109 of the 2014-2015 Annual Inspirations Idea Book for inspiration.  The design for the card is taken from Pattern 27 of Make It From Your Heart, Volume 1.  I love how quick this card came together and how simply adding several punched circles brought a plain piece of cardstock to the next level.
