Just Because...

Did you see my subject? See... I can't name it anything outside my sentiment. I need a copywriter just for my blog posts.

Well I haven't been able to spend a lot of time crafting for the last few days, but tonight I was determined to make something. I have several new sets all calling my name. The one I decided to use is from my friend Dawn's new stamp line. I combined it with You're Dandy (currently out of stock, but I have more coming) and they really make a nice pair (don't you think Dawn?)

Originally I made the card without the little flowers, but I just wanted something on the grass. I just pulled out my o' Cropodile and started punching tiny little flowers. I think the way the dot curls up looks really cute in person.

Stamps: Funky Foliage (WPlus9); You're Dandy (Practicing Creativity)
Ink: Latte, Snow (Hero Arts Chalk); VersaMark (Tsukineko)
Cardstock: Sky Blue, Summer Sunrise, New Leaf (Papertrey Ink)
Ribbon: White Satin (May Arts)
Embossing Powder: White (American Crafts)

I distressed the edges of my tree. I thought they gave a nice fluffed look. Below they kind of just look like I didn't cut very well. Please excuse that.

Hey Losties... are you still glad Ben's still around?

Oh I like that popped-up tree...and the addition of the yellow, I would have added something down there too. This is a really fresh, springy card - like it!

Both sets look adorable together!!! Loving how you used the curled dots from the crop-o-dile! I've flattened them out and used them, but now I'm going to have to try using them curled!

Hey Girl,
How cute is this layout. It is more like a scene. I like the little yellow flowers. It adds a cute little punch to the card.
