Because I Care Thank You Card

Hello! I hope that you are all staying warm and enjoying the winter weather! It is VERY cold here, but we haven't had much snow, so we aren't snowed in (which I am very happy about)!
I made this card this afternoon for a friend who requested a collection of thank you cards. I absolutely love this stamp set. It is called, "Because I Care" and it is a level one hostess set. It is my favorite of all our great level one hostess sets because it is so pretty and versatile. This image is great for lots of different types of cards.
I decided to try something a little different for this card. I have seen several cards online where people made a background by inking up the clear blocks that are used with our clear mount stamps and stamping with the block itself. I had never tried this technique... until today! I made the rectangle in the background by inking up Clear Block E with Crumb Cake ink and stamping it onto my Very Vanilla cardstock. I think it gives a very nice effect. What do you think?
To stamp the hydrangea image, I colored directly on the stamp with my markers- Cherry Cobbler for the flower and Pear Pizzazz for the stem and leaves. I stamped the flower again and popped it up with dimensionals. I finished the card by adding a knotted piece of Early Espresso satin ribbon and the "thank you" sentiment from the set "Thank You Kindly". I was really pleased with the way this card turned out, and I hope that you like it too!
Have a wonderful weekend and I hope to have more cards to post soon!
