Convention swap card #2

Here is the picture of the second card I chose for swapping. It features the Because I Care hostess set. I was trying to stay with a monocromatic style as well as show the slight difference between celery and the new pear pizzaz. I did also stamp the hydrangea image twice once on the base and then again on another piece of whisper white. I cut out the second piece and popped it up. I also shaded the top hydrangea with a bit of chalk for definition.
stamp set: Because I Care
paper: certainly celery, pear pizzaz, river rock textured, whisper white and greenhouse gala dsp
ink: certainly celery and early espresso
accessories: scallop edge punch, small oval punch, and stampin' pastels
