Just Because

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion! 
Good Afternoon my crafty friends!
Happy Monday and Happy Labor Day :)
Today, I have a fun card to share with you using stamps from my friend Tara over at Craftin Desert Divas. I coordinated two of the sets for this card. They are called Simply Said and Blooming For You. Tara also has a linky party going on so be sure to head over there and play in the challenge!
The details are HERE
I started with a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card base and followed with 3 panels about 1/8" increments. Then distressed all the edges with the zutter DIA. I then used Nesting Eyelet Square dies for the next layers.
The adorable bear is from the Blooming For You stamp set which I colored with copics and then a touch of Wink of Stella glitter pen for a shimmery effect.
I tied on a pretty bow with ribbon from SU that was in my bin. The pink Jute String bow is from My Craft Spot and then a small flower that was added to the center which was from my stash.
The tag is cut at 1 1/2 from Art Philosophy cartridge and the sentiment is stamped with the Simply Said stamp set and then tied on. The corners have citrus skittles that I picked up from my friend Carri.
For the inside, I used SU punches for the circle and the scallop.  I stamped the sentiment and the butterfly all from the Blooming For You stamp set.
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
 1.) Craftin Desert Divas Linky Party-Anything Goes
2.) Little Scrap Pieces Show it Off Saturday
3.) DL.ART September Linky-Anything Goes
