Just Because

It is a beautiful day today and I'm catching up with my yard work.  Just trimmed down some bushes and hoping for some beautiful flowers in a few months!

I always love the challenge of a one layer card and enjoy trying something new.  In this case, I found some old stamps that I had for other project before I started making cards.  I bought these stamps for $1.50 at Michael's---what a deal!  And they stamp beautifully!





I started this card by creating my doodle frame from an older stamp set I had.  Then I found these cute little flowers from my $1.50 purchase!  I stamped black ink, then colored with copics.

I added the sentiment at the bottom (from a more recent stamp set!)  To finish off the card, I added a bit of wink of stella to the flowers (can't really see the sparkle in the photograph).






I thought I would enter this into the challenge at Less is More One Layer Challenge with stems. They also have a design team call there and I thought I would throw my card into the hat!  Wish me luck!
