H2H Challenge| The Little Things

Welcome to my page! I blessed to have you stop by! Today I am posting my design for the Heart2Heart challenge: 'The little things' If you love inspiration and or challenges, you are in the right spot.

Close to My Heart has some amazing products, and one of our new paper collections is called 'The little things' that being said, I am going to be a rebel and take the challenge in a different direction. 

Today's inspiration comes from a little coffee date with a friend, only to discover she desperately needed a pick me up! This coffee date allowed her so much comfort in being to relax, if only for a moment from the day-to-day mom stuff. 
So I created this card, to send her as a follow up...because it truly is 'The Little Things'

To enter the challenge and for more inspiration, click here for the inlink option on the main H2H blog page. Remember, your item/project MUST contain at least one identifiable Close to My Heart product.  Super simple, right! I can wait to see who wins this weeks badge! 

Supplies used:
Perk up stamp set
September stamp of the month: randomnact of cardness
Hawthorn paper collection
Saffron ink
Intense black ink
Gold shimmer brush
Stamping technique: shadow stamping
