CADB Post: Just Because

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by. Here is my entry for this weeks theme, "Just Because" on the Card A Day Blog. This one was posted a little late, so it is very simple. Actually it's a makeover of a card I already had, altered to suite the theme.

For the original card, I started off with a white 5.5" x 4.25" card base. For my background paper, I used a piece of cream and yellow striped designer paper cut to 5" x 4". I then cut a panel out of a shimmery yellow card stock at 2.75 x 3.25 and added a panel of the rose patterned paper cut 1/2 an inch smaller each way and adhered that to the top of the yellow paper, then added that piece to my card. 

For my label, I cut out a piece from one of the Spellbinders label sets, and stamped my sentiment on top of it in black ink. I then inked the edges of that piece with pink ink. Originally the card had the same exact tag with a different sentiment, so I replaced that one with the new one. I also added a pink paper rose that I had in my stash for an accent.

I hope you like my last minute altered card, and that you will let me know what you think. Be sure to visit the Card A Day Blog every day for some great card making inspiration, and be sure to enter our monthly challenge for the chance to win a great prize!
