Kylie's International Blog Highlight April

Welcome to Kylie's International Blog Highlights for April. This month our theme is Encouragement and I decided to design a Spring card to brighten someone's day. I hope that you will enjoy my card and that it inspires you to create your own card to share with someone special.
 For today's card design I chose to use the beautiful Abstract Impressions Bundle (item #148348) from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog and I paired it with several retiring colors from the 2017-2019 In Color Collection. I love the way that Berry Burst, Fresh Fig and Powder Pink work together to create this pretty Spring card.
 This clean and simple card design features the large floral thinlet die from the Springtime Impressions Thinlets dies that are a part of the bundle. I love all the detail in this die and it fits perfectly on a card front as the main focal image. I used Berry Burst cardstock for this die cut and it stands out beautifully against the Powder Pink cardstock background. 
The sentiment is from the Abstract Impressions stamp set from the bundle. I stamped the sentiment onto the Powder Pink cardstock layer using Berry Burst Classic ink. Assembling the layers of this card is very simple. I used a layer of Fresh Fig cardstock between the layer of Powder Pink cardstock and the Berry Burst cardstock card base to create a thin frame for the main panel.
To finish off this simple card design, I added Basic Rhinestones to the center of some of the flowers of the die cut and used Clear Wink of Stella for a touch of shimmer.
