The new level one hostess set, A Slice of Life, in the Occasions mini catalog is quite a useful one! I enjoyed the baby onesie on a card a few weeks ago, and I enjoyed working with the dogwood blossoms today. I used the square lattice embossing folder to create a nice texture on the Early Espresso cardstock layer, and I think this card's color scheme contributes to the simple modern look too. When coloring the blossoms, I used the tiny end of the Blushing Bride marker to quickly make a loop of color so that there is still some white on the petals. I enjoy the knots in the hemp twine too.
