Just because...

Good afternoon lovely friends,
I hope you are having a good weekend wherever you are.
Just because it's Sunday, just because I adore Tiddly Inks and just because I want to...
here is my 'thinking of you....just because card'!

Nimble Fingers...

Morning lovely friends,

We have a new challenge starting today at
The Sugar Bowl
and it is Anything Goes (with a Sugar Nellie Image)


The prize for the lucky winner of this month's challenge is four Sugar Nellie Digital Images, and there is a second prize winner of two Sugar Nellie Digital Images from 
Funky Kits

For today's card I have used the gorgeous Sugar Nellie digi
Webb Knitter
available
from
Funky Kits
I coloured this sweetie with Copics and added a touch of Wink of Stella to her wings (it is a shame the camera has n't caught the sparkle because it looks really pretty)!

I used some distress ink around the edge of the image to soften it a little.

I layered the image with a selection of red papers from my stash and added some twine and heart shaped gems.

...and here we are, lovely Webb Knitter...gorgeous is n't she, and rather nimble fingered I think!...
