Thinking Of You Card Using CTMH La Vie En Rose Paper and Art By Miran Digi

Hello friends.   I am celebrating my 600 Followers and 3 years with Close To My Heart; and would love for all of you to participate in my Blog Celebration.  Click here for the blog post. Join my followers on Google Friend Connect, leave a comment on my blog celebration post and link your blog with Mr. Linky.  No blog, no problem.  Leave me a comment stating that you don't have a blog. I will add you to my list manually.  

I am giving away at least 25 wonderful prizes; maybe more; depending on number of entries. Anyone who wins outside US will qualify for digi stamps from my wonderful sponsors; as I am not allowed to send CTMH products outside the US.  I am doing a separate drawing for a $25 shopping spree of qualified CTMH products; for everyone who orders more than $50 from my CTMH website during my blog celebration.  

Thank you to everyone who has joined my blog celebration and/or purchased at least $50 to get into my grand prize drawing.  I appreciate all of you very much!

I created a card using this week's Mojo Monday Sketch; which you can see below my card.  I used the gorgeous Art by Miran Flower Diva Adoncia; which was free for the monthly progressive challenge on Art by Miran Facebook group.   You do need to request to join; as it is a private group.  If you didn't enter the last one; you can purchase the new image for this next challenge, enter a photo of your creation into the Art By Miran Facebook page; and the next month's will be free.  You do need to follow the instructions and you do have to request the next month's image each month.
