Just Because!

Hello everybody,

I played along My Favorite Things Sketch #156 today. 


It is a beautiful CAS sketch. But I wanted to do some things pretty with layers. 
Here is my take on the sketch.

Just Because

I did ombre background by sponging Mint Julep ink lighter on the top to gradually darker as it goes towards the bottom of the card front. I then layered with chevron diecut using Chevron Coverup die from MFT. Layered with a circle diecut using white glitter paper and Stitched Circle Stax die from MFT. Instead of the sideways speech bubble insert. I diecut a few Contemporary Roses (MFT) using vellum and stamped just the shading image on the vellum.And for the leaves I stamped using gold ink. Layered the flowers and leaves.Then stamped the sentiment from Contemporary Roses on to the banner diecut and layered using foam adhesives. Used some sequins to accent. Here is a closeup!

Just Because

Love the colours mint, pink and gold together. I loved how it turned out. Because it was exactly how I pictured. Hope you do too:)
