My Favorite {CTMH} Things" Blog Hop

Welcome to the "My Favorite {CTMH} Things" Blog Hop!
Love is in the air and today our Playing With Paper team is sharing artwork featuring some of our favorite products from CTMH. If you have come here from Carol Haines Du Ree then you are on the right path.
Today I have created a card just for my valentine so I needed the card to have a masculine feel to it.  I used a paper layering technique to stamp the flowers in Ruby ink.  Then I cut black cardstock and framed the 3 layers of Daisy paper.  I cut a 1 1/2 inch rectangle4 using the CTMH Cricut AP cartridge in Daisy and the layer in Ruby.  I stamped the "Happy Valentines Day" tag and assembled the card.  I absolutely love this large rose stamp.  This is a very good stamp to use for all kinds of backgrounds.  This SOTM selection is DEFINETLY a keeper! 
Items used:
CTMH Ruby stamp pad
CTMH Ruby cardstock
