Because I care

I love this hydrangea, a level 1 hostess set from the 2010-2011 Ideas Catalogue. Its such a beautiful flower. I'm sad I wont be able to demonstrate it anymore :(

I cased this card from one I saw on a blog recently, but have searched online and just cant find the original. I always like to give credit to the designer - but unfortunately am unable to in this instance.
