Screen Shot 2020-05-02 at 7.36.42 AM
This month, I have decided to participate again in Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlights Event and you are able to VOTE for my card!!  The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop so I would really appreciate you taking the time to Vote for me!!  Scroll down below, there is a button where you can click on and see all the participants and you get to vote for 5 projects!!  So 4 plus mine!!  Hint, hint.......
As always the theme is - Thank you.  What better time than now,  to send out a thank you cards.
My card uses the Jar of Flowers Bundle from the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue.  I love this stamp set - flowers for every season that are perfect for colouring with Stampin' Blends.  Tulip season has passed here on the West Coast, but they are one of my favourite flowers so I had to use this stamp and colour the tulips is Daffodil Delight!

A little bit of fussy cutting around the flowers, but the bundle includes the Mason Jar punch which makes it so easy to punch out the jar.  I also fussy cut around the sentiment which is from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set.


I used the Forever Greenery embossing folder to add some detail to the Whisper White cardstock behind the flower jar.
Now is the time to vote for my card.  Click on the picture below, it will take you to the highlights and you need to pick 5 cards.
