Before I get to the card, I want to let those of you that have been in the path of these horrible tornadoes know that you are all in my prayers. I pray that God will give you strength to get through the hardships you're going through, and that you'll feel his arms wrapped around you.
Now, to today's card. I used two different challenges going on this week for this card. I used the color challenge at SCS, CC324, and the card sketch at Mojo Monday, MOJO192. I REALLY like this color combo! The colors are so pretty together. I really like this sketch as well. I think the added scalloped circle and tag really make the card look special.
I used the Rock & Roll technique on the larger flowers, and used markers on the smaller ones. There was no green in the color combo, but I think Soft Suede works for the stems just fine. The stamp set that I used is a new Level 2 hostess set in the Summer Mini called Love & Care (p. 5). I earned it free for signing up a new demonstrator during SAB. I love being a demo! It's such a beautiful set. I usually sell my hostess sets after they retire, but I plan on keeping this one. I just can't give it up! I wrapped a 2" piece of Victoria Crochet Trim (p. 190) around the small tag, and then attached it to the larger Baja Breeze one. I then added the Perfect Plum flower brad from the Subtles Flower Brad Pack (p. 187). The tag is attached with Stampin' Dimensionals (p. 197). As you can see, I added some texture to the card by dry embossing the plum layer with the Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder (p. 214). I love how this folder makes cards look so elegant!
