Well, this card is a special treat ... it's a 'just because' card!  I've been {blessed} to be super busy lately getting design team cards ready for before we left for vacation and then hitting the ground running getting more design team cards done as soon as we returned and I have a break today -- so I made this card 'just because'!!!  It's not for any design team commitment and didn't have to be done to meet a DT deadline -- other than the challenges I'm playing with for this card.  What a TREAT :)

Lots of my favs on here including DSP's and bloomers from Webster's Pages; glittered chipboard from Melissa Frances; buttons & twine from PTI; ric rac trim die from MFT and bingo card from Jenni Bowlin!!

I hope you've enjoyed peeking at my 'just because' card today :)
