Just Because - CCMC293 & PPA194

I made this card using some new stuff I got in my last order. The flower stamp was smaller than I was expecting for some reason, but I really like it here. I used the Hardwood background stamp again, which I love so much.

This card is for two challenges. The sketch challenge at Create With Connie and Mary and the color challenge at Pals Paper Arts.
