Just Because You Can.....

That's the theme for this week's challenge at THE CRAFTY PAD and we are loving it! We want you to make a card for someone 'JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN' and NOT for a specific occasion. Sooooo folks, that means we DON'T want to see birthday cards, cards for anniversaries, or get well, no good luck or congratulations, this ISN'T an anything goes challenge, it MUST be a 'just because' card!

Our sponsor this week is Creative Craft World

And the lucky winner will receive a £10.00 voucher to spend in their online shop.
The DT all had the same digi to work with this week, but you won't BELIEVE how different all the creations are!!! (If you don't believe me, just pop over to the challenge blog and see for yourself!) We used Roshell Ducky & Eggward, the very cute ducks which you can find HERE.
Here's my card (FINALLY I hear you cry!)
As you can see, I have made an acetate tent card, and I am really pleased with the overall effect!
 My image is coloured with Promarkers and cut out/mounted using nesties.
The DPs are Dovecraft Sugar & Spice, and I have cut a fancy border using my MS border punch. 
I added a co-ordinating butterfly (craft tonic) some lace and buttons and a couple of gems.
Through the centre view!

The senti ticket I have used is PERFECT for this week's challenge, it says 'Just Because' and I added a tiny frond of ric rac to complete.

We REALLY hope to see lots of you joining us this week!

I would like to enter a few challenges with my card:
Thanks for looking!
