Just Because I

'Frida' from Dilly Beans
I have decided to do a series of Clean and Simple [CAS] cards - all with the sentiment of "Just Because".  A lot of white space using only scraps of DP & minimal embellishment.
The only textures I added on this one are the scored lines achieved with a Scor-It & the silver foil added to her earrings. [See below] The sentiment is elevated on a punched shape by SU.

This card should be eligible for the following
