A first

Well, this is the first card I have ever made from Close to my Heart products.  I have to confess that I was one of those people who simply did not think of CTMH for cards.  But I was wrong.  This card comes from the Topstitch Workshop to Go - which provides the papers and embellishments to make several scrapbooking layouts and numerous cards.  I adjusted the design of the card a bit from the instructions and used my nifty Making Memories Slice machine for the image shape.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it.
