Just Because

Hi bloggers!  I had a dig through my background stash pile and found this pretty aubergine coloured piece to use for today's card. I used Aubergine Dream and Plum Twist Pixie Powders on it. I used the scalloped border from the Decorative Border die set and cut it four times out of white card.  I glued them facing each other on an extra bit of the pixie card.  I added mounting foam to the backs of both of them and added them to the sides of the background piece.  I cut the Noble Just Because out of black and glued it to the middle of the card.  Using the Pierced Layered Flowers, I cut all three sizes in white, then added the matching outline piece cut out of the pixied card.  I added black centres then attached them around the sentiment in opposite corners with white leaf accents.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/4"  x  9 1/2"  in size.  

Don't forget to scroll down to the post below this t see if your name is on the list of winners that was posted yesterday.  All for now. Sue x

Hi Sue
Happy Tuesday everyone x
Glorious background. Those colours really are stunning. The decorative border is another new and fresh die to me and it’s gone on my want/need list. I’m thinking cling film may have been involved in this creation 🤔
I love a just because card. Love sending and receiving cards when it is ‘just because’. It spreads a little joy and happiness and I’m all for that.
Congratulations to the lucky winners. It’s always so exciting to receive that prize through the post. Enjoy x
Take care one and all x
Sending you all positive thoughts x
Crafty hugs x
