A just because card ...

Now and again I make a card for no other reason than I just wanted to ! I dont plan to make a card for a challenge or occasion it just happens and cards like this are right up my street ! I love soft neutral/natural colours and a clean simple style, I think the cream and white in this card reflects that, It looks softer than the photo shows and the sentiment reads.

Use the talents you possess - for the woods would be silent if no birds sang except for the best.

I had a look around at this weeks challenges and I will enter it for the following:

Alphabet Challenge : N for Nature

Daring Cardmakers : Make a card for your sister or friend.

Creative Inspirations : Anything goes.

Stamp Scrap and Doodle saturday, Clean and simple

Creative Inspirations Wednesday challenge : Animals

Let's Stump Cheryl !
Last week the DT tried to stump Cheryl by not signing our cards and Cheryl had to guess who made which card, well even though I cheated ( a little bit ) by making a card very different to my usual style, Cheryl got me first time :) here is my card from last week.
Well done Cheryl !
