Adding Color to Die Cuts / SSS Let's Connect Blog Hop

Hello everyone! Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp "Let's Connect" release Blog Hop! You can check Day 1 here. Also, make sure to read until the end if you want to know how to participate in a giveaway!

¡Hola a todos! Bienvenidos al segunda día del blog hop celebrando la nueva colección de Simon "Let's Connect". Podéis ver el día uno aquí. Además, os recomiendo leer hasta el final para conocer todos los detalles y participar en un sorteo. 

COLORED DIE CUTS

For my card today I used the floral die cuts Cosmos Bloom and Poppy Stem. I also used a sentiment from the stamp set Anna's Flowers
I went a little bit out of my comfort zone with this card, but I like how it turned out. You will find all the details in the video below (it can also be watched at my Youtube channel). 

Para mi tarjeta de hoy he usado los troqueles "Cosmos Bloom" y "Poppy Stem". También he usado un sentimiento del set de sellos "Anna's Flowers".
Con esta tarjeta he salido un poco de mi zona de confort, pero me gusta cómo ha quedado. Todos los detalles los podéis ver en el vídeo de aquí abajo (o en mi canal de Youtube).
