Just Because

Today we had a different sort of thing at church. The temperature was supposed to drop this evening, so we had a potluck lunch and a testimony time afterwards instead of a regular evening service. That meant a long nap for me, and some free time tonight. So I made this card.

These were my inspirations:
Sketch - Sweet Sunday Sketch
Color Palette & Stars - Crazy 4 Challenges
Theme (just because) - Pile it On
I used a Christmas stamp (the star) for a "just because" card for the Make it New challenge at Sentimental Sunday
I used leftovers from my For Always workshop for the Leftovers challenge at Opus Gluei

Materials used:
Cardstock: Black, White Daisy, Smokey Plum
B&Ts: For Always
Stamps: Say It In Style, Sparkle & Shine WOTG
Ink: Black, Smokey Plum
Other: Purple Gems
