Just Because

Hi friends - welcome back for another fun sketch over at Splitcoaststampers! You can see the sketch live tomorrow or catch a sneak peek down below.

Talk about getting all colorful and springy - OOOOO AAAAAHHHHH! :D

Instead of a circle, I used this adorable 'Enclosed Present Stamp and Die' set from Papertreyink; I absolutely love it...and I'm not sure why but I love creating ombre colors for the present die - I've done it time and time again (HERE and HERE are a couple of them), and this time was no exception!

I stamped a cute little 'just because' tag and used MFT's Damask Background stamped 2nd generation in Steel Grey for a fun accent. I die cut the bow a 2nd time, sponged in ombre colors and mounted with glue dots for a tiny bit of dimension.

Hope you join the fun, we love seeing your creations with the sketch challenge!! Have a great week.
