Just because ...

Good evening everyone!  I have another card for the CDAC Progressive Challenge #3 to share with you this evening.
My card features the "Swallowtail & Sunflower" Digital Stamp provided by Just Inklined.  I loved coloring in this stamp.  I colored the Sunflower and Swallowtail separately with Faber-Castell products.  Fussy cut both of them out, then added the swallowtail with 3/16" Mini Glue Dots.  After putting my boarder together I attached the Swallowtail & Sunflower with 3/16" Mini Glue Dots and Paper Studios Sticky Doos, and then I curled the tips of the flower a little bit.  Once I added the sentiment from A Muse Studio's "Just Because" stamp set, I added some faux stitching around the boarder with a ruler and a White Gelly Roll Pen.

I think adding the faux stitching really makes the stamp stand out.

Come on over to CDAC and see all of the wonderful inspirational projects provided by the Design Team, and then join us.

Thanks for stopping by!
