Because I Care- again

I made another card with the level 1 Hostess set called Because I Care and the set Tiny Tags.
  • The base of the card is Regal Rose with a layer of Old Olive.
  • I stamped the hydrangea using Regal Rose and Old Olive randomly on Very Vanilla. After stamping I ran the CS through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice folder (I think it kind of makes the background look like fabric). I wrapped a piece of Old Olive ribbon around the lower half and added this to the other layers.
  • I stamped the hydrangea 4 times on scrap CS and cut each one out smaller then the one before. I layered each layer with dimensionals and then added the smallest pearls to the centers of the flowers. I cut the leaves out and left off the stem. I added the finished flower to a piece of Old Olive CS that I had punched the corners with the Ticket Corner punch.
  • I stamped a couple of phrases from Tiny Tags and punched them out and tied them to the knot on the ribbon with croquet thread.

If I were to redo the card I think I would make the piece of Old Olive CS under the flower a square instead of a rectangle. Tell me what you think and have a wonderful night.
