Just because...

It's a Glee-full Tuesday once again my friends, yeah!
I wonder what awesome songs we will be treated to tonight? ;)

So I've really got a 'just because' card today... I didn't make it for any challenges and I've got no specific recipient in mind, I was purely having some fun with this one. Though I did want to experiment with a new lighter red hair color combo that I've been kicking around and I gotta say that I'm pretty pleased with how it came out. It kinda reminds me of Anne of Green Gables red, which is just what I was aiming for. So you know this one will be going in the keeper recipe list. :)

The rest of the card is just using some new BG Kioshi paper and epoxy stickers. Their soft colors seemed to suit miss Miko, from the new Roll Call set, to a "T" and I think it looks like she's walking through her own little secret garden now. Listen to me mixing up my literary references... Anne of Green Gables, The Secret Garden... I can't seem to make up my mind on which one is influencing this card more, LOL!

Well I hope you all enjoy a craft happy day today and a most excellent night to my fellow Gleeks! :)
