Just Because

 Hello there my crafty friends!  I found this piece in my background stash that I thought might work for this card.  I used a piece of Silver Sparkle Alcohol ink card.  I used a bunch of colours all over the piece by dripping the colours randomly.  I cut the Swirly Scrolls Background in white then glued it over the top of the alcohol inked background.  I used the Double Stitched Rectangles and made a white frame that I added with mounting foam over the background.  I cut the Just Because sentiment in black gloss card and added it to the shadow die cut out of vellum.  I made a single white flower using the Pierced Layered Flower die set and added it to the corner of the sentiment.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  8 1/4"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Wow Sue, what a great way to open the blog, good morning to you and everyone else.
This background is one that needs to be seen to be believed, I have a feeling you also have a 'very' large stash of I can't throw that away like we all have lol. This is just beautiful, that pop of black just blends to show the background colours off. Gorgeous.
Love to all that visit today xx

Morning Sue. Great background today using really cheerful colours which might look a bit too busy without the addition of the swirly background in white to tone it down a bit. Love that swirly background.

Hi Sue
The random colours of the alcohol inks, behind the swirly frame, makes a real wow card that is beautifully finished with the bold sentiment on a vellum backing

Love and hugs to everyone

Hi Sue, I really liked this card when you launched the Swirly Scrolls Background (which is on my must-have list) and although as I have said previously I don't have the alcohol inks I am sure some random pixies would give me a good background for this lovely die. The vellum base for the sentiment is just right, keeping is light.
