Just Because

I am hosting a Flourishes swap over on Splitcoaststampers (its closed now) and here is one of my cards that I made for it.  I am really loving the Graphic 45 designer paper, its so soft & pretty, not to mention its double sided, you have to love that!  I did the Joy fold for this, its still 4 1/4 in by 5 1/2 in, its just a fun and different fold, there is a tutorial on splitcoaststampers that Beate did if you want the details.  I would have liked to add a little bit more, but with swaps you are making so many of them, it gets to be a lot of work the more things you add.  So I am happy with them.  The image of course is from Summer on the Patio from Flourishes, in this set you get two of each image in different sizes.  I added a few buttons and ribbon to give the card a little texture, I still feel its missing something, can't figure it out yet.  Does that ever happen, a card looks ok and you know it could look great, you just don't know what to do?  I colored in the image with some Copic markers.  The base is a retired SU card stock color, True Thyme and then Kraft is the second fold.  I hope your week is going well!

Just Because, Joy fold style
