Some "Just Because" Cards

I've been asked to make some cards for the Women's Ministry at my church to give to the ladies of our church, so I was busy this week mass-producing cards! Here are some of the cards I will be giving them.
This one is actually for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #45. It's been ages since I've participated in a sketch challenge, so it felt good to make something like that! Blue Bayou and Sage Shadow are my go-to colours when I can't think of a combination! I love how they look together. I used some Blue Bayou Prints paper as well, along with my Simply Said stamp set. I coloured the flowers with Stampin' Write markers and added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter for a little bling.
For this one, I used Splitcoast's Sketch Challenge 172 for the layout. I used Berry Bliss paper and matched it to Pretty in Pink and Close to Cocoa cardstock. The image is from Embrace Life, stamped in Basic Brown and coloured in with Stampin' Write markers. I used some Whisper White taffeta ribbon and my ticket corner punch to finish it off.

I got to play with my Cuttlebug for this one. I used Soft Sky, Chocolate Chip and River Rock, along with my Baroque Motifs and Sincere Salutations sets.

For the very last card, I used Blush Blossom, Mellow Moss and Elegant Eggplant as my colours and Bloomin' Beautiful and En Francais for the stamps. I coloured in the flower with my Stampin' Write markers.

Wow! I managed to post something two days in a row! Are you impressed? :) Thanks for visiting.
