February 17, 2015 Just Because


Made this quick card because I loved the sketch for Sketch Saturday this week - and because my goals for February are to use my stash!!  Another stamp set by Hero Arts that had yet to see ink -  and asst. papers from paper packs that I seem to continue to add to.  I really like the way this card turned out, to add a little extra interest to the focal image I took some ink refill and water, dipped the point of my paint brush in teh mix and then flicked dots on just the focal image, I like the way it turned out.  I always need a simple just because card for a special need in chemo angels so I am sure this will be on its way this week.  Challenges:
     Sketch Saturday - follow sketch
     Crafting from the Heart - anything goes
     Simply Create Too - anything Goes

Such a pretty card Shirley and what a great way to start using up those patterned papers. I think just because cards are wonderful to receive unexpectedly so I I'm sure this will be appreciated.
Thanks for sharing with us at Simply Create Too and I hope you will join us again soon.
