Because I Care

After a busy week back at work, it's now Saturday and I've had some time this morning to make a card.

This card uses the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and the colors at Create with Connie & Mary.





I made Basic Gray my main color with Calypso Coral as my second color and the only Pool Party I used were two buttons from the SAB 2013 kit.  I turned the buttons upside down because I preferred the smoother side.





Thanks for looking.

Products used (all Stampin' Up!):

Stamps:  Secret Garden; Because I Care
Cardstock:  Whisper White; Basic Gray
Ink:  Calypso Coral; Basic Gray
Accessories:  SAB 2013 buttons; Basic Pearls; Secret Garden Framelits; Basic Gray Two Tone Ribbon

Karren this is just beautiful - love the little cluster of flowers and the texture you've added gives great interest to the Basic Gray (I don't even know where this embossing folder is myself as I haven't even used it!) Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

What a gorgeous color combo, made more so by your beautiful Calypso Coral flowers which just jump right off the card! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!
