SSS April 2015 Card Kit


Welcome to the Simon Says April 2015 Card Kit blog hop.  This months kit is so much fun with lots of fun and shiny details.  Shiny...yes!  Gold!  If you are following along on the hop you should have stopped in here from my sweet friend, Heather's blog.  If you would like to start back at the beginning, just stop over to the Simon blog.

I used some of the gorgeous kraft/gold card stock for the background.  I layered some of the gorgeous Simon colors to make the sentiment pop.  And that sentiment?  It is a rub-on that comes in the kit.  I haven't used a rub-on in years and I had forgotten how much fun they are!  These sentiments are so fun and unique.  There is also several star brads included which makes such a fun detail to add on.
