Love & Care Card

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!
