Just because

Happy Wednesday!  It's time for another What If? Wednesday challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week we have a fun sketch for you to try:
I decided to go all soft and dreamy with this one.
This aqua blue is just so beautiful, and I love it paired with soft gray, too.  I started by stamping the background stamp with a pale gray.  Then I stamped the image on two of the circles using versamark ink and white embossing powder, and sponged the aqua blue ink over the image to make it pop.  Added the sentiment to the smallest circle and finished it off with three tiny rhinestones and a bit of sheer ribbon.
I hope you get a chance to play along; I can't wait to see what you come up with.  Hop on over to The House blog for the full details and to see what the rest of the team has created.

Heather, I love the soft grey and aqua together. The background stamps worked perfectly for your focal image. At first I thought it was embossed in silver, but the grey is so pretty it didn't need it. Lovely card.
