Just Because

This was suppose to be my first challenge card of the year, but guess what, it doesn't fit the the challenge I made it for so it's back to the drawing table.........LOL.

The sketch is by Bev for the WOC challenge (which I'm not entering just yet) and the card itself was suppose to be used for Bells'n Whistles - Let it snow, Snowflakes - It's an Elizabeth Bell image but not from Bells'n Whistles......DUH......That's what getting another day older does for ya..LOL

Card info:
  • Jingle Bells image by Elizabeth Bell from Sugar Nellie 08
  • Ticket from Nina at Paper Cupcakes
  • DP- BG Wassail, CM Cranberry, Card base is from Paper Temptress
  • Colored with Copics
  • Spellbinders dies, MS Snowflake Punch, Star Dust Stickles
I've had this image colored for heaven knows how long and sitting on my table so thought it would be a really good time to use it since it's more of a winter image.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll leave me a comment so I can come visit soon. "Hugs" Carol

I have done that before too. Great card, love the patterns and those snowflakes are great too!


Thanks for sharing this beautiful card Carol - love the snow effect and the adorable image. Will pop back again to see your Bells 'n Whistles card! (The names are soooo similar I would have probably done the same as you Carol)! At the end of the day, it doesn't really matter - it's all about sharing with friends, and you have those in abundance.
Love and hugs, Sylvia xxxx

Carol, I love this - what an adorable image! I love the patchwork of colors and that cute ticket sentiment - great job! I went shopping at HL and Michael's yesterday, but not much there I wanted, and that's a first! Happy New Year to you!
