International Highlights Winners Blog Hop

Welcome to the International Highlights Winners Blog Hop for March 2019! I was honored to have my card chosen as the #1 choice by vote. Here is my card that won:

Kylie Bertucci is the Administrator of the original hop and she puts together the top ten winners into a separate blog hop. The theme is encouragement and I wanted to use Butterfly Beauty Thinlit Dies still available in the Occasions Catalog, but only (as far as I know) through March 31, 2019! It is a beautiful set of 5 butterflies that are cut all together in one pass through the Big Shot (or any die cutter).
I cut the butterflies with Whisper White Thick and did a quick ink blending with Stampin' Sponges with the following colors: Real Red, Mango Melody, Pineapple Punch, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, Highland Heather and Berry Burst. A soft gentle circular motion does a beautiful blend. It was adhered to a standard A2 Basic Black card stock with small touches of Tombow Liquid Adhesive all over the back.
The sentiment was cut 3 times from the "Well-Written" Framelits using Whisper White card stock. They are glued together with tiny specks of Tombow Liquid Adhesive to form a sturdy type of chip board. Vellum was cut with a "Rectangle Stitched" Framelit. The word "Sympathy" was adhered to the vellum with tiny bits of Tombow glue and adhered front of the card the same way.
The inside has a simple sentiment from the "Kindness & Compassion" stamp set. Really a beautiful font. A simple butterfly finished the inside.

Follow the links below to continue on with the hop and see some amazing work!
