Hydrangea Thank You

This card was inspired by Splitcoaststampers Inspiration Challenge - IC336 - hardtofind.com.au.  My inspiration was the pretty blue tote bag found here:  http://www.hardtofind.com.au/products/Peony-SAKitToMe-Tote.html.

Other inspiration:
1.  Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog - flowers; and
2.  DYSU Challenge Blog - DYSU#71 - Use a flower.

The beautiful hydrangea stamp from Stampin' Up's Because I Care set was stamped with white pigment ink and heat embossed with detail white embossing powder.  The background was dry embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.
