International Highlights Winners Blog Hop - June 2023

I’m so excited to be featured in the the International Highlights Top Ten Winners Blog Hop hosted by Kylie Bertucci. I was selected to participate in this hop by finishing in the top 10 in the June 2023 International Highlights. Thank you to everyone who voted for my Countryside Inn Thank You card.

Today I'm sharing a pretty card featuring the Darling Details Bundle.  When I saw the dies for this bundle, I was hooked.  How amazing is it that you can weave ribbon into one of the dies.  

Isn't this card so pretty in Lemon Lolly and Lost Lagoon on a white embossed background.  I love it when a card comes together.
