Because I Care

Happy Monday!
I must be feeling purple today. I used "Because I Care" stamp set from Stampin Up. Concord Crush and Pear Pizazz card stock and an old designer paper from SU. I gathered the ribbon by threading a small strip of Concord Crush card stock through the openings and adhered it to the designer paper with Sticky Strip tape. The designer paper is punched with the "Scallop Trim Border" punch. The background is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder only on the one side. I trimmed it with a paper flower and some of the lace ribbon topped with a button and used a Martha Stewart punch for the greenery. Spellbinders Labels Eleven Nestabilities were used to layer the flower and Long Rectangle Nestabilities were used for the sentiment.
The pearls are form Kaisercraft.

I love this color combination. I am using Concord Crush and Pear Pizazz card stock. My image is from Sweet' N Sassy Stamps "June Rose". It is one of my favorite stamps I think because it is so classic. I colored with Copic Markers and sponged the background of the image while it was still in the Nestabilities die with Distress Ink "Antique Linen". The designer paper is a retired paper from Stampin UP, the punch is EK Success.

Thank you for visiting today and taking the time to leave a comment.
