Jill here for Kennedy Grace Creations, welcoming you who know and love them, as well as those of you new to this product line and blog! This month we have a gorgeous Mood Board with some of my favorite colors (see below). My card, of course inspired by it, uses the stamp sets Splendid Roses and Beautiful Blooms - Sweet Rose for the sentiment. I used 2 KGCs sequin mixes on my card, Cotton Candy and Enchanted Evening.
This month, as soon as I saw the mood board I knew what I wanted to do. I recently received the Splendid Roses stamp set from Kennedy Grace Creations, and was itching to use it. I also recently bought an Avery Elle cover die called Horizontal Stripes. It has a lovely circle cut out in the middle of the stripes (perfect for my roses!). The two in my mind were meant to be together.

Next I placed some liquid adhesive on the back side of the cover die's circle to adhere my roses in the proper place. Once adequately dry, I flipped the entire piece over and applied lots of 3M Scotch foam adhesive so that the cover die had some dimension and sturdiness over my white cardstock base.
Once adhered to the cardbase, I white heat-embossed the Happy Birthday sentiment from Beautiful Blooms- Sweet Rose using WOW! Super Fine, Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder on some black cardstock and cut it to size. Wanting some sparkle on the card, I cut 2 strips of white prism glitter paper from my stash and placed one under the black sentiment banner and one along the bottom edge of my top folding card. Lastly, I used some gorgeous sequins from Kennedy Grace Creations in pink and green tones from the Cotton Candy mix and the Enchanted Evening mix.
