Because I Care

Good morning! The kids are back in school, the house is quiet and I have a card to share. Life is officially back to normal, wohoo!

There's not much to say about today's card, I embossed the flower with white embossing powder. I wanted to use the reinker technique on the flower but I didn't feel like getting a water spritzer out so I used my white shimmer spray instead. Definitely not the reinker technique since the alcohol dries so quickly, but it did make the rose very shimmery, lol. I think I might go back yet and add some shading to the rose for depth.

Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral, Because I Care, En Francais
Paper: Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Shimmer Paper
Ink: Bashful Blue, Always Artichoke, Basic Black, Crumb Cake
Other: Pearls

Have a great day!
