Just Because...

A while ago I barely had time to make the cards I needed to make, let alone creating something 'just because' I could/wanted to. But things are thankfully back on an even keel, and today's card is one of those 'just because' creations.

I adore this image as I love poppies...the contrast in colour between the vibrant red and the black seed centres, not to mention my fascination with the wonderfully delicate petals. it is another Stamping Boutique image and has been coloured with Promarkers. The Stamping Boutique currently have a Spring sale on, with $1 off every digital image...a perfect time to stock up!

I do like gingham papers, and in my search for something to compliment the red and black of the poppies, I took the opportunity to use them once again :) I felt the sentiment worked really well for this image. The stopper for this little easel card is made using a Martha Stewart border punch, and I have added a few heart gems and a gingham ribbon.

I will enter my cad into the following challenges:
Thanks for Looking.
