Because I Care

Hi everyone. I'm going to make this post short and sweet since two granddaughters are still visiting for another 10 days. They sure have been keeping me busy, but I love it all... I think.  8-)
The two cards I am posting both used the NEW Hostess Level 1 set called "Because I Care".
This surely is going to be a NEW favorite of mine.
In the first example I stamped the beautiful hydrangea and sentiment with the NEW color EARLY EXPRESSO - What a great deep rich brown. I then colored it lightly with a NEW IN color  Poppy Parade write marker and blended quickly using  a blender pen.  I lightly sponged Early Expresso on everything including the background piece made stamping several difinitions from the Define Your Life set. I tied string around the center, added a few dimensional to adhere to the front.


The second card used the same "Because I Care" stamp set for the flower and sentiment but this time I stamped in Early Expresso  with  another NEW color Marina Mist blue for the ink and cardstock. Then added a simple NEW Marina Mist 1/8" taffeta ribbon Very simple assembly.

Hootie says.. "Thanks for stopping by! Please leave a comment and tell me what you think.

Diane, absolutely LOVE the new colors and of course you know I like the stamp set! Great job on the cards, very elegant plus I like the sponging on the scallop vanilla piece behind the hydranga. Less is more certainly shows here, love 'em!
