This is day 1 of the Hey Bestie and Love You More Blog Hop, and we've got quite the lineup for you! I will put all of the blog hop details at the end of my post, but how about we get to my card first? I was so happy that this gorgeous Peony stencil from CZ Design was included in my shipment! Peonies are my favorite flowers, and while I love winter - I do get excited to see my peonies bloom in late spring. For this card I softly ink blended the petals & leaves with Distress Oxide inks! I've linked the specific colors used on my cards in the link list at the end of my post.

I started the card with ink blending. Once finished, I sprayed the card down with some clear shimmer spray. I let that dry, then diecut the panel with the largest Essentials: Stitched Rectangle die.

Next I diecut the You Are Loved sentiment. I diecut the shadow layer from Bazzill vellum. Then I diecut the sentiment layers twice: once from glitter paper and once from white cardstock. Then I stacked & adhered all of the pieces together with a Zig glue pen.

At this point it was time to put the card together. I mounted the ink blended panel to the front of a pink A2 card base with foam adhesive. Then I adhered the diecut sentiment to the front with thin foam strips. Finally, I accented it with the Essentials: Jewels mix in light pink, purple & white.

That is everything I have for you today! If you have any questions about my card, feel free to leave them in the comments and I will be sure to reply.

That is what I have for you today! How about we get to all the fun blog hop info now?!
