Fancy Friday Blog Hop - Just Because

Welcome to the Fancy Friday Blog Hop!

First, did you notice the FAB new Fancy Friday logo?  It's awesome...and I LOVE it...and it certainly deserves a shout out to its creators, my Fancy friends Susan Wong and Cindy Schuster.  Always taking care of us in such an amazing way!  💕

Our challenge for this hop was Just Because...just because we liked it...or just because we needed a challenge...or just because we needed to get a card out and into the mail.  Anything. just because became a trio of note cards...just because I had wanted to use the colors together...and just because I wanted to use the Falling Flowers Bundle...which I just love, by the way! 

I also knew that I wanted to do something CAS...and I really wanted to use sentiments from the Love & Affection and Picture Perfect stamp sets.  So...I chose Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo as my color combo...and used them as both the focal point and for my die cuts...

and paired them so that each color worked once with both of the other colors.  Easy peasy!

I added a bit of silver embossed "splatter" using the Gorgeous Grunge set...and then a twist of Silver Metallic Thread...

and simply perfect sentiments in Basic Black Archival Ink.  Simple, easy and just because!

Thank you so much for hopping with us on Fancy Friday!  And now...I'm sure you'll want to hop over to see my friend Shannon's Fancy project.  It's sure to be amazing!

As always...
