Just Because - CYCI35

I was Guest Designer with the 'Can You Case It' challenge blog back in May and I am excited to share that I have been invited to join their design team!  I'm thrilled to be working along side some very talented designers and look forward to working with new challenges each week!

This week's challenge is a fabulous color combination:

Coincidentally, those colors can be found in the All is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper, brand new in the holiday catalog!! Isn't it just lovely??

So...I took the challenge and changed the paper from holiday to any day. I want to know that I can still use the paper after the holidays have passed! More bang for the buck, right?!? This paper series is seriously to die for! Photos don't do it justice, so trust me, you NEED this one!

I stamped with two stamp sets on this project. The leaves and flowers are from the Summer Silhouettes Stamp Set and the sentiment is from the A Dozen Thoughts Stamp Set. A very useful sentiment stamp set, handy to have around!


I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to place the leaf branch right where I wanted it and then turned the card stock around so I could stamp from the top down, leaving just enough space for my sentiment. I dabbed a bit of Dazzling Details into the center of the flowers for some sparkle. Double matting the top layer and popping it up with Stampin' Dimensionals adds depth and visual interest. Today this lovely 3/8th" Stitched Satin Ribbon in Lost Lagoon is the finishing touch.

Thank you for stopping by! Please visit the Can You Case It Challenge Blog to see the other designers' projects and we would looovvveee it if you played along! With a color combination like this, how can you pass it up?? lol
