Just because ....

.... Good afternoon! Thanks so much to everyone who has stopped by recently to read my posts and leave me comments, I don't say it often enough, but I really do appreciate all your comments - they mean a lot to me.

I've had a fun time in my craft room today making a card for three challenges - a couple of which I haven't played for ages. Here's my card:

Just Because - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Stampin' Up! - A Dozen Thoughts, Watercolour Wings
Inks: SU - Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum, Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake, Soft Sky; Versafine - Onyx Black
Dies: SU/Sizzix - Swirly Scribbles, Bold Butterfly
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Soft Sky; SU DP - So Saffron; Wink of Stella - Clear; Gems

I got my parcel from Stampin' Up! yesterday with goodies from the new catalogue - I ordered the new in-colours. I think they're just fabulous and I used a couple of them on this card.

I'm submitting this card to the following challenges:

I stamped the butterfly using my MISTI to ensure that the images were all in the right place and cut it out with the matching die. I added some frosted gems to the butterfly's body. I die cut a scribble circle from some pale yellow design paper. I cut a strip of soft blue card for the top of the card and echoed the colour in the dots at the bottom of the card. I finished the front by stamping a bold sentiment and adding a few gems. On the inside I cut a mat layer of soft blue card and on the white panel added some texture stamps, but left lots of space for a message.

That's all for today. I'm off to have a coffee before heading to school to pick up Kat. See you soon.
