Create with Connie and Mary this week has a color challenge - Perfect Plum, So Saffron and Wild Wasabi.  I decided to use the new level 2 hostess set from the upcoming Summer Mini called Love and Care for my card. 

I sponged the edges of the top panel and the sentiment and then after it was all complete, I added some homemade mist.  A mixture of Perfect Plum reinker and rubbing alcohol.  I would maybe add a little more alcohol next time to get the color a little lighter, but I do like the effect it gives.
