Just Because....

Another challenge! Another card! My favorite thing to do! Even now, I'm trying to cook supper and do this post at the same time. If I burn the chicken pot pie, my dh may not be so understanding of my paper addiction!

This card is another combination of challenges! I love having a sketch and a color combo all figured out, so that "all" I need to do, is come up with an idea!
    Easy, peasy...NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The sketch (done by one of my favorite Verve Divas-Amy Sheffer) for the
          Viva La Verve May Sketch Challenge:

And the beautiful colors are from the fabulous  CR84FN Color Challenge:


And this is my creation:

The corners were made with a Spellbinder Shapeabilities Pendant eyelet dies.
as well as the pendant behind the sentiment.
I added some Stickles glitter to give it some sparkle!

I felt it was too bare in the middle, so I hung a silver charm from the bow with some linen thread. 

Thanks for stopping by! I must go finish our dinner!


Paper:K&Co. Watercolor Bouquet; Kraft
Stamps: Verve "Circular Sayings"
Dies: Spellbinders Shapeabilities Pendants Eyelets,
Accessories: EK paper punch;purple ribbon;linen thread;rhinestones; and a silver charm
