Thank You Card Set - Hero Arts Summer Release Blog Hop

Hello.
Today I am part of a big blog hop with Hero Arts celebrating the release of the Summer Catalog products in the Hero Arts store.
For the hop, I have created a set of 4 matching Thank You cards, featuring the new Paper Layering Daisy die set
Kindness Card Set by Lucy Abrams
First, I die cut the daisy from different colours of cardstock. Then, I flicked them with different types of shiny mist, including Wink of Stella. I created a pool of Multi Matt Medium in the centre of each flower, then sprinkled on sequins from four of my Sparkly Shaker Selections (Pineapple Ice, Purely Peppermint, Pink Lemonade and Ocean) Finally, I added dots of Star Dust Stickles and Glossy Accents. While the flowers dried, I stamped the sentiment from Acts of Kindness on white panels, added stitching and adhered to coordinating folded cards.
Kindness Card Set 2 by Lucy Abrams 
So much sparkle and shine on these cards.
Kindness Card Set 3 by Lucy Abrams 
I love the way these Paper Layering dies create focal points that literally pop off the card.
