Just Because and GIVEAWAY

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps 
Hello Everyone~
Happy Tuesday and Happy Birthday to me...hehe!
It's a sunny day and the temps are warming up....just what I ordered, lol!

Today, I have a couple pretty cards using a new set called Just Because from the latest release at My Creative Time. I made these for a couple people I had in mind to let them know I am thinking of them  and to brighten their day :)
The base layers are created with the Stitched Rectangular Frames and More. The pattern paper is from Glitz Design called Felicity. The white panels have a stamped background using Jaded Blossom Spring Splatters stamp set. I stamped with weathered wood and spun sugar distressed ink.
The flowers and sentiment are from the Just Because stamp/die set. I stamped the sentiment on one of the cards onto the panel and the other onto My Creative Time's Vintage Stitched Label Die.
The flowers were stamped and then a second flower added foam adhesive for a little dimension. The butterflies are My Creative Time's Mini Butterfly dies~so cute! I finished with some pretty sequins from my stash~
 I just love this set!!
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Little Scrap Pieces Show it off Saturday
2.) Jo's Scrap Shack Challenge #133 Anything Goes

  18. Both of your cards are beautiful! Pink is my favourite color! The flower stamps are gorgeous! Happy Birthday to you! Thank you for a chance to win your candy! I have been following you for a long time (Fit Kitty). I am on a blog break now. All my crafts are packed up. We had to move out of our house for major repairs (insurance claim). We've been waiting over a year and happy that they are finally being done. However, I'm not having a good time in the vacant house where we're staying - feeling very displaced and wishing to be home again. Luckily the library is not far from where we're staying so I can read emails. Your candy looks delicious and I would really be excited to win - could really use some good news right now! My email is fitkitty1@gmail.com.
    Hope your birthday is a lot of fun and that you get spoiled with lots of new crafty goodies!
