Because I Care - CR84FN18

It's time for another wonderful color challenge from Mona at CR84FN, thanks to everyone who joined us last week!  This week not only do we have another wonderful color palette, but we also have Deb Hickman joining us as our Guest Designer this month!  This weeks challenge colors are Orange, Yellow and Kraft, the wonderful inspiration photos are from Embrace Life Photo.


I dusted off some of my SU stamps for today's card, I just love the Damask Flourish from this set!  I used the Tissued Color Technique (Distress Inks Marigold, Mustard Seed) from the current TJNL to add color to the flourish and stamped the bird in Pumice Stone.
