Just Because...

Pin It

***Before I get into today's post, I wanted to shamelessly plug, er, uh...  remind you about my first-ever giveaway I have going on this week!  You can find the details in this post, but really it's simple -- all you have to do to be entered is become a follower of this blog (if you aren't already!), and if you do, please leave me a comment so I can take some time to visit your blog and say "hi!"  I will run this thru 11:59pm CST Friday night, June 15th and announce a winner on Saturday, June 16th...  
Thank You and Good Luck!!!***

And now back to our regularly scheduled programming!  :)  

The card I'm sharing with you today is my take on this week's color challenge over at The Play Date Cafe -- which was a real bugger, btw!  :)  If you've been following my blog for a while, you know that I heart my patterned papers and rarely do a project without them.  Well, the good folks over at TPDC must have had other things in mind when they chose this color scheme, 'cuz I had nuthin'!  I was gonna have to do a lot of stamping and coloring!  I also had in mind to use one of this month's sketches over at the Hero Arts blog as inspiration for this card -- Circles!

So here's what I came up with:

 Was hoping you'd be able to tell more about the different levels on this detail shot...

I'm pretty pleased with it, especially since (promise you won't tell anyone --  this is just between us...) this was my first time ever stitching on a card!  Ha!  :)

Anyway, thanks for stopping by!  I would be super-honored if you would consider following this blog -- again, the giveaway is still open for another couple of days!!!  :)  Hope your week is starting off famously!


  1. Hi there, I just found your Blog from Hero Arts Flicker and really love this card......will be bookmarking your Blog.

  2. Oh la la! Love the circles & dimension! I have the hardest time with color challenges-I think it's because I can't touch (not weird touch, *nervous laugh*) the colors. And kudos for stitching! I don't even attempt machine stitching, just hand stitching.
