    Hello Michelle: This is yet another wonderful creation. I don’t have the hostess set but I do have some stamps that would work just as fabulous. I love the shading you did on the corners of this images, this makes this pretty flowers just jump at you and then, the embossing just took this card to another fabulous level. Thank you for sharing this card and the tutorial, they always help tremendously.
