Just because...

Good Morning friends! I have a card today that I made just because, well I should say that wasn't for a dt  commitment.  Stamping Bella has a sketch challenge this week and I finally got a chance to play along and since I just bought several of their "Uptown Girl" images I thought I would take advantage.

These are some older Basic Grey papers, some sheer shimmery ribbon and of course, glamour dust on her dress and shoes. Wish I had legs like this girl! Some red spica pen for the berries on the mistletoe and voila! One of my only Christmas cards this year! All right, time for me to get outta here and get to work. Hope you all have a great day!

I love this image, so cute, and I agree I wish I had legs like that too. She reminds me of the Penny Black girl. I love her. Hope you have a wonderful day.

I know what you mean for the "just because cards" it is hard to fit them in sometimes. This is image is just adorable, I see why you chose her.

Amanda, you have such a way with color - love how that little bit of blue in the designer paper, and the blue around the image are perfect with the ribbon! Very cute card!
