Just Because



Today Stampotique is excited to be sponsoring the Less is More challenge to use black, white and one other color.  Make sure you check out their blog for the guidelines to the Less is More challenge.  We will be giving away at $30 gift certificate for Stampotique Stamps this month over there.  There is a challenge weekly so make sure to play along with us each week.

Just a little note: Since it is Jubilee Day in the U.K. the challenge was changed to reflect  Red, White and Blue. Our design team was unaware of the change, however we'd still like to share our teams beautiful creations with you.  If you are playing along in the challenge, please be sure that your new creations reflects the new colour challenge!


My card I cheated a little as I had some Fabriano cards/envelopes and they are off white, but hopefully it still is okay.  I tried to keep the card to a minimum using some Glimmer Mist to splatter the background and just touching up the flower a little with my Copics.  For the inside of the flower I used some Gala Glitz Glitter to add a little bling for the CAS-ual Friday Challenge.

This weeks Blogger's Challenge is also a one layer card, so this works double duty for that.  If you would like to join us for that, feel free to link in at the hop at the Blogger's Challenge site.

The splatter is my second attempt at the Splatter Technique Challenge at the Moxie Fab World.


Hope you are having a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!
