Just Because

 Hi bloggers!  My very favourite reason to receive a card, just because!  I picked black, white and red for this creation.  Using the Samantha Walker stamp set called Dainty Doilies, I stamped the entire background of the red card with one of the stamps from the set  using a black archival ink pad.  I created a border by using one of the insert dies from the matching die set called Delicate Doilies.  I cut four of them in a row and added pearls to the centres then backed it with white card.  I added a small raised white border on both sides to set it off a bit.  I wrapped a piece of black silky crush ribbon around the card vertically before adding my die cut border.  I tied a double bow and added it to the top of the card with a cameo in the centre.  I stamped a small tag with my sentiment, dusted the edges with Fired Brick distress ink and tucked the edge under my cameo.  I added three small pearls to the tag and to the upper corner of my card.  I matted it with a thin mat of black card before finishing the card with a double white pierced mat.  Finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x 8" in size.
I am thinking about adding a regular feature to the blog of a weekly card giveaway.  I do them periodically now, but I think it should be more regular.  How would you feel about a Weekly Wednesday Card Giveaway?  Sound off if you are in favour!  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue. A fantastic card today !! I Love your red, black and white colour combo. Very striking colours. I have this set but have been busy making some other themed cards. I cannot wait to finish them so I can use my new Doilies set. I love your big bow and cameo too. I keep meaning to make some just because cards but never seem to get round to it. (I make cards quite slowly due to illness.) In my family there are just so many birthdays and anniversarys ect, it is difficult to keep up !!
Your idea of a Wednesday card giveaway is brilliant !! I would love the chance to win one of your gorgeous cards !! So a BIG YES PLEASE from me. You are so kind Sue. Lots of love Tres x x x
