Hi Friends,

"Just because", is something that really makes a persons heart happy (at least it does mine). Don't you just love it when someone comes by to see you  and they say "I was in the neighborhood and I thought I would stop in "just because"-- or someone buys you a special gift for no reason, that is just because.  How about a card in the mail " just because"?  Well if you said yes to any of these, then that is why I made this card "just because"-- It made me happy

My honey comb background is from a Darice embossing folder and I used vintage cream card stock and then chalked over the top with inkadinkadoo chalks. The stamp set I used is delicate wings, petite perks with slate ink for the dragonflies and terracotta tile for the butterflies. The die cut image of the bee is from imagine more (IC cricut cartridge), which I used creme brulee ink like watercolor to color the body of the bee. The patterned piece of paper to the left is from Basic Grey Lucille 6 X 6 paper pack. Love these enamel dots my friend Carri (abusybee)  makes skittles and decided to try her hand at these enamel dots. I used 2 clear ones and one yellow one, they remind me of dew drops or in this case, honey drops. I adhered them with CTMH liquid glass, it worked perfectly My other friend Karen ( Little scrap pieces) makes this  awesome crinkle ribbon, which she does not sell and the only way you can get it, is to enter her challenges.  That is how I got mine, I won!!! I got 8 skeins of her latest colors and this yellow was one of them. Isn't it gorgeous?


 the "Just because" is from PTI Asian Fusion.


The sketch I used was from Fantabulous cricut blog I took artistic license  and added the beautiful ribbon at the top.
