Just Because.........

Sometimes it's nice to send a card to a friend just because...... for any number of reasons.
So I do like to have a few of these cards that will fit the bill if I don't have a specific occasion card.
This little card was made from scraps left on my desk before I tidied up today,
and this design just asked to be made up!

It's a  10 cm square base card with a colour combo is Strawberry Slush, Silver and White.
Made quite simply from 4 scraps of Strawberry Slush DSP from the In Colour 2013-2015 Collection
a stamped and punched Petite Petal flower,
and a couple of reject silver leaves punched with the Bird Builder punch.
(rejected as the stems weren't long enough for the project - they are fine for this one!!)
The sentiment is a retired stamp that I won't part with as its so useful.
All products are Stampin' Up!

I have just realised I should have taken a photo of the scraps first - as it's too late for that
here is a piccie of what was left after!!

I would like to enter this in
