Just because

Hello everyone! I'm so happy to be home from my business trip to San Diego! It was beautiful but didn't see a lot since I was in meetings for 9 hours a day! Glad to be able to get back into the craft room and get inky today!

This card is for three challenges. The sketch is from FMS#153, the leaves are for The Friday Mashup #177 (sketch is pretty close too) and lastly CAS-ology cue card is three.

Leaves are die cut and stamped using Papertrey, Ink leaf prints dies and stamps. Sentiment is also from PTI using the simple sentiments set.

Inks are from Colorbox petal chalk inks in earths and regal from SU.

Burlap paper is from DCWV and cut using the scalloped die from spellbinders nesties. I had to run it through the cuttlebug a few times to get it to cut completely.

I used the biggest rectangle stitched die from Lil' Inkers to and my tan embossing mat to do the stitching between the sentiment.

Well, that is it for today! Thanks for stopping by! I'm off to enjoy the 80+ degree weather we are having today!

Awesome take on the Mashup this week, Laurie. The soft sponging goes so beautifully with the texture on the burlap. Thanks for playing along with the Friday Mashup this week:)
