July Hearts of the West Blog Hop

Welcome to the July "Hearts of the West" team blog hop!

If this is your first time joining us, I think you will love it!  This hop features Close to My Heart consultants from the Hearts of the West team in Canada and this month (July 1st) we are celebrating our country's birthday .  
A fun little fact...Canada is turning 147 years old! 
This month, in honour of Canada's birthday, our challenge is to use the colours of our flag:  red and white.  So grab a cup of coffee and sit down for a relaxing journey of creative paper crafting from the Heart!
I chose to make a quick and simple card for the challenge this month. 
The stamp set I used was A1155, Japanese Blossom. This little stamp makes it very easy to shade!  Just follow the shading lines and your image will look perfect!
The flowers were cut at 2" from the CTMH Art Philosophy cricut cartridge.  If you use Copic markers, as I do, the colours I used were R35, R37, YG97, YG99, and C9.  Cardstock color is "Ruby".  The pretty red bling on the die cut flowers is Z1807 Pink Glitter Gems.  The ribbon is unfortunately, a retired CTMH product.  

This is a circular blog hop - no matter where you start....  if you keep on going ... you will end up back where you started!  There is a complete list of participants at the end of this post .... just in case you get lost. 

If you came from Anna's blog, then you're on the right track!
