Just Because

This is my post on the Dies R Us blog today!

I am happy February is here, how about you?
We are getting closer and closer to Spring
which brings us to bright and happy colors!

We don't get lots of sun here in Michigan in the winter
so I have to make my own sunshine by creating pretty
Spring cards!

I started with a white card stock base,
that I embossed lines about 1/4" all around each side.

I used Memory Box Open Studio Stitched Squares on a bright yellow design paper.
A heart was cut from Cheery Lynn Designs Heart To Heart Doily.
(Don't you just love that hearts can be used year round?)

For the flowers, I used my Color Bursts,
then cut them out with PoppyStamps Marcelle Flower.
This die reminded me a lot of a Crocus.
I glittered the stamens yellow.

I finished with a glittered Crafters Companion Fluttering Butterfly
Added a ribbon bow and a sentiment of "Just Because".

Don't forget to visit our 'sister blog' Dies R Us Challenge
and enter your card for a chance to win a 'gift' to spend at the store!

Thank you for visiting with me today!
