Just because I felt like it

............that's why I made this card:

I used:

- 6" x 6" square white card blank, tent style

- backing paper from Wild Rose Studio's 'Always and Forever' paper pack

- a snippet of black 'spiders web' trim

- a silk and organza flower, ages old and probably Prima

- a couple of black feathers

- die cut 'enjoy' from the Penny Black 'Hooray' set, kindly given to me by Sarn

- one black pearl as a dot above the letter 'i'

And there you have it, a card for no reason - just because I felt like it :)



  1. I LOVE it! It is so stunning. I love seeing black combined with one other colour. The flower looks great on the black netting and yes, I too think the flower is Prima...cuz I have that same flower.
    Hmmm...I may just have to cardlift your lovely design!

  2. Love the pink. It is SO you! That paper is gorgeous, and of course you know I love the die sentiment. Great trim on the fishnet ribbon and the lovely bow. Black pearl over the 'j' was nifty touch too. TFS & Hugs

  3. That's really pretty! Very pink and girly, and very you!

  4. Very pretty - great to do something on impulse 'just because' isn't it?

  5. Very pretty card Di love the black webbing against the pink


  6. I don't think you need a reason to make such a lovely card Di. The sentiment says it all!

  7. ....and rightly so Di, we can do what we want just coz we want to and what an awesome result...♥aNNie The Journey is the Start

  14. That's a rare and fun thing to do, Di, and I'm sure this beauty won't linger in your stash for long before some date on the calendar lays claim to it! Lucky recipient! I've enjoyed catching up with the posts and cards I missed while I was away!! Hugs, Darnell
