Just Because






















Good morning, it is mojo time again and this is a contest week. So show us your best mojo creation and you could win free Verve. To get all the details and to load your creation to Mr Linky head over to the Mojo Monday Blog.
I am super excited to share today's card for several reasons, one I adore this SU designer paper and the Verve set Love's Flower, no I am not tired of it yet....lol...you guys are probably tired of me using it...lol. The second reason I am super excited is because this is also for Everything But The Kitchen Sink Challenge #5 to use a box top. I used an empty glue dots box and cut out the heart shape an added SU chunky glitter. I add a pattern for the heart from an empty chipboard heart I used from Melissa Frances. I adore this idea, now I can make hearts shapes or any shape from chipboard and put any type of embellish I want on them...so cute. Thanks Winter for the challenge! I hope you gals have a great Monday, can you believe it is already February and my favorite non Christian holiday is fast approaching.....I am so mushy and gushy....show some "love" today! Enjoy.

This is for the 411 Sketch Challenge. I used a SU set some embossing on the black piece of card stock, not sure you can see it or not. I added the ribbon and red gemstones to the flowers. I have needed lots of sympathy cards lately. This sketch is perfect to keep it a little more simple. This is my first time playing along with Stamping 411. Have a wonderful day....enjoy!
