Just Because III

Third  in the Just Because Series
My goal is a CAS card - lots of white space, minimal embellishments!

I'm using these for RAKs, quick Get Wells, etc. and I can use up some of the colored images I do when I am B*O*R*E*D and just want to play [read 'color' here].  One of the best parts is that I also get to use up leftovers from my scrap pile!

I love this Dilly Beans image with her summery flowers to give a friend on a very hot day [108 last week!].  It is July 4th, another hot day and time to celebrate!

This card should be eligible for the following 
Dilly Beans – Summer Lovin' - TOP THREE
Sentimental Sunday #213 – Summer
Crafting from the Heart #25 – ATG
Through the Craft Room Door – ATG
Papertake Weekly – ATG
Tuesday Throwdown #202 – ATG
Fussy & Fancy  #117 – Summertime
Art by MiRan Challenge #9 – ATG
CMC Copic Challenge #95 – Friends

IMAGES:  The focal image is from Dilly Beans; Sentiment is Hanko
PAPER:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# Cover Wt. used for the images; DP banners are from stash.
EMBELLISHMENTS: E-folders from Cuttlebug were used on the two banners; Scor-It used for scored lines. 
INKS: The image was printed on a Canon PIXMA printer & colored with Copics.  Sorry - I did not keep track of the colors on this one.

May you create wildly and color with abandon whenever it amuses you!  ~ginny
