Pansy Petals Trifold Shutter Card - International Blog Highlights

I'm excited to participate again in Kylie's Monthly International Blog Highlights for May! As always the theme is - Thank you. 

I created this pretty Trifold Shutter card using the Pansy Petals Bundle and Designer Series Paper.  This is a new product suite from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue that goes live tomorrow - May 4th!   I absolutely love this product suite!  The paper is beautiful and the dies make it easy to create beautiful pansies!  On my card today I added a pansy bud in Calypso Coral and Pale Papaya (one of the new In Colors!).  My card also 2 other In Colors - Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen.

Isn't this little bumblebee adorable!
