Kylie's International Highlights Top Ten Winners Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the International Highlights Winners Blog Hop!  I am participating in this blog hop today because of everyone who voted for me here where we made a card of encouragement for someone who needs a little pick me up.  This is the card that many of you voted for that placed me in this wonderful group of demonstrators that I feel privileged to be hopping with today.

Today is a snowy day in NW Ohio so I would have loved to have made another snowflake card for you; however, I decided to create a warmer weather card!  At OnStage, I fell in love with this Wonderful Romance Cling Bundle the minute they introduced it.  I know that I was not alone in this feeling as there was an abundance of ooooo's and ahhhhhh's.

The Wonderful Floral Framelits Dies alone were a must have for my ever growing list of wants from the Occasions Catalog.  It was so exciting to see that every single stamped image from the Wonderful Romance Cling Stamp Set had a matching die and then, oh, all the extra coordinating dies were such a wonderful bonus!  But I must say that my favorite die is the highlight of today's card.

Isn't this trellis with leaves growing up along it divine?!?
And the stamped images are perfect for watercoloring... in any array of color combinations!

I don't know if you can tell, but there is a subtle Gray Granite wash behind the floral on the Wood Planks Shimmery White layer.  Don't you just love how the texture of the embossed leaves with the trellis makes the perfect binding edge for a card!

For the inside, I enjoyed being able to cut out all three of the blooms with a single pass through the Big Shot thanks to having four (4) dies for this adorable blossom.  The sentiment was off-stamped in Rich Razzleberry.

So do you think I received my color inspiration from the fabulous Designer Series Vellum that is part of this Suite?!?  Nope...  try again.  I had my nails done yesterday and was not too happy with the final dip powder color... but guess what?!?  I'm beginning to get used to it because it was my inspiration for this card!
