Just Because

My card today is for a sketch challenge at Retro Sketches

and a color challenge over at Colour Me.

I love, love, love the color combo of this challenge. I instantly
knew that I was going to use the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and
make my own DSP with it. From there, I wasn't sure what I was
going to do. I played around with a few ideas when I remembered
this weeks sketch at Retro Sketch.

I grabbed some tempting turquoise card stock and matted it and my
homemade dsp onto black card stock. Next, I stamped the tempting
turquoise with the En Francais stamp - I'm so sad that it's retiring :(

A couple of finishing touches and this card is done!

all from stampin' up unless noted
card stock: whisper white, tempting turquoise,
      basic black
stamp set: gorgeous grunge, en francais, 
      loving thoughts (cas-ual fridays)
ink: tempting turquoise, coastal cabana, bermuda bay,
      pacific point, stazon
embellishments: black & white twine (unknown)

Happy Stampin'
and thanks for visiting!
