Just Because

 Hello bloggers!  I started with a piece of aqua card for the background.  I cut the Draped Jewelled Border four times out of white card.  I glued each one of them to the edge of the card, slightly overlapping in the corners.  I cut the Noble Just Because in black and glued it to the centre of the card.  Using the Pierced Layered Flowers, I cut three of them in white, then added black outlines and aqua centres to them.  I seated them around the sentiment and added white leaves as accents.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2"  x  7 1/2"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue and friends that visit.
Not much to say apart from elegant, gorgeous even serene in a way. The colour you've chosen is a long time favourite so that's a good start, I love the black highlight Sue, really makes everything pop.
Ann, hope today will be a better day, I've had to learn to 'let it happen' this year and it's worrying, mood changing and stressful but I keep telling myself "there's always next year" my guilt is eating at me but thankfully our family are helping me by saying... nothing matters lol.
So today I shall revisit this beautiful page and also wish everyone love and caring xxx

Morning Sue,
So nice to be able to compare and contrast both yesterday's "Just Because" with the noble one today.
Aqua is still my favourite colour so thank you for a lovely card.
Hope everyone is keeping warm and well.

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, the sample today is a great favourite of mine, the colour choice is spot on, and yes I have the dies to make it, on my list for the New Year.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Hi Sue. Love today's card. It is so good that you show us different ways to use your dies - this gives us how to get even more value out of them.

Hi Sue

Such a pretty card, love how you’ve made the frame effect with that gorgeous die.

Love Helen xxx

Hi Sue, so sorry for not leaving a comment yesterday not least because it is the die that I won. I love the card and although I do not have the necessary alcohol inks I am thinking of other ways that I can create a similar look. Today's card is really lovely and the Noble Just Because sits perfectly on the Draped Jewelled Border die cuts.

Steph - I hope you are now well on the road to recovery.
Ann Topp - Hope you feel better very soon and it is a bad cold rather than flu.
