Just Because



Hi all! I spent the past couple days organizing closets, cabinets, and doing some cleaning to get ready for the birthday party next weekend. I have more to do today, but wanted to make a card first. Doesn't the day just go better when you get to start it out with stamping? I think so, too! {smile}

For this card I used a couple new JustRite stamps, My Garden Borders & Centers and Just a Note Borders & Centers. The yellow circle is up on foam tape and I added mini rhinestones to the sentiment and yellow panel. All the stamping was done with Memento Cocoa ink.

The layout is Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch.

Have an awesome day!
