Kylie's International Blog Hop for August!

Welcome everyone! I have the pleasure of playing in Kylie's International Blog Highlight again this month. I love receiving Kylie's email each month inviting me to play! She is such an awesome team player!

Our Theme this month is Random Act of Kindness or Encouragement. I think everyone needs a little bit of encouragement in one way or another at some point in their life. For my card today, I used two techniques. The first is outlining my white-embossed images with a Stampin' Write Marker and the 2nd is coloring my flowers with Clear Wink Of Stella. You should see this card in person. It shimmers and shines and is truly beautiful:

Although I opted to go "Clean & Simple" with my project, I still have 3 layers on my card. Calypso Coral, Whisper White and Blushing Bride. Once all of my embossing, outlining and coloring was completed, I glued my last cardstock layer in place using Stampin' Dimensionals for height:

My last step was to add White Perfect Accents to my background. The three accents add just the right amount of bling. Notice how I high-lighted my sentiment with the Stampin' Write Marker? Doing this really makes the letters pop, don't you think?

Now that you have viewed my card, I'm hoping you will visit Kylie's blog and vote on my card. The more votes I receive, the better chance I will get to being invited as one of the top TEN spots on Kylie's international blog hop that she will organize a little later on.

  • Stamps: You've Got This
