Just Because

Happy Friday!  It is time to kick off another month of weekly Viva La Verve Sketches.   Julee Tilman is kicking off the first week of August with a sketch and a color challenge!   Check out the VLV Blog for more details and inspiration!


For my card I am using Verve's newly released Peaceful Medallions with Petals and Wings and Beautiful Kindness stamp sets.   I also used Verve's Cut Above Wings & Petals and Flag Its dies.  I  finished my card with Verve's Shine Bright Sequin Mix. 

 I am playing along with this week's Simon Wednesday Challenge:  Anything Goes!  Shopping Our Stash:  Choose 3(I chose die cut, rhinestones, stamped doily), Simon Monday Challenge:   Inspired by letter J.  Just Because card and Jewels!

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
