Just Because I Care


Check out this cute little purse Beate used for her inspiration challenge this week. It's by Belle Bags.

I started with my colors first--Old Olive, So Saffron, Night of Navy, Not Quite Navy, and Tempting Turquoise. I then focused on the circle pattern and stamped the medallion from Baroque Motifs. I punched it out with my scallop punch, then layered it on larger circles using my Nesties. I colored the dots around the image with a clear glitter pen, then added rhinestones for more sparkle.

The sentiment, "Just because I care," is one I think I'll be using a lot lately. We've had several health-related issues at my school recently, both with parents and students, so I've been sending out a bunch of cards like this one.

Stamps: Baroque Motifs & Best Yet (SU)
Paper: Old Olive, So Saffron, Night of Navy, Not Quite Navy, Tempting Turquoise

Ink: Old Olive, Night of Navy
Accessories: scallop punch, Nestabilities, rhinestones (Me & My Big Ideas), ribbon (The Ribbon Retreat), clear glitter pen (Spica)
