Because I Care

I am currently enjoying a very peaceful household. It's just Coco and I chillin' out at the moment. Dave has taken the kids camping for a couple of nights. I've been getting lots of bits and pieces done, and it's been lovely to just clear my head.

'Because I Care' was one of the first stamp sets I pulled out to play with. I just love the hydrangea and it was begging to be inked up. This was a Sketch Challenge over on the Elite Challenges Blog. I love participating in the challenges over there, but I am woefully behind.

This was a tricky one to take a photo of. I had one pic that showed the flower clearly, and another (this one) that showed the Shimmer. I went with the Shimmery one. This card has a ton of my Top Ten on it - Shimmer Paint (on the flower and the raised embossing, in Frost White this time), Embossing Folder (Finial Press), a little stick on Pearl, the Scallop Trim Border, Patterns Stack DSP (in Sahara Sand - the script is Sonnet 83 by Shakespeare). And 2 things that didn't make the Top 10, but I'm still loving a lot - the Modern Label Punch and Organza Ribbon.
It was so lovely to be making a card, just because :o) Hope you like it!

  1. Lovely card Marelle. Have just ordered my first shimmer paint and can't wait to try it - maybe I'll have to add it to my top 10 too! TFS

  2. I definitely do like it Marelle! That organza ribbon looks beautiful too!


  3. Gorgeous. I'm thinking my shimmer paint and the stamp should arrive outside my door tomorrow (I work nights and the postie leaves my parcels rather than me having to pick them up 3 days later on my days off, he's a good man). Just got my first big order today, can't wait for days off so I can play!
