Just Because... - Some Odd Girl Challenge

Hi everyone!
  This week I really wanted to enter the Some Odd Girl challenge - Shaped Cards - my ever so sweet hubby bought me a bunch of digitals from Kristy's store because he knows how much I love the adorable images and I turned a glorious 35 last week!  My favorite character is probably Mae (I say probably because I adore all the characters) - this image is called A Mae Day and can be found HERE at Some Odd Girl.  I colored her in Copics and fussy cut her.  I also used my white gel pen to accent the flowers and portions of Mae herself.
I then turned to my Gypsy Lady and used Walk In My Garden cart for the large sunflower cut.  I stamped my Just Because sentiment from a clear set that I purchased recently (sorry, I have no idea what stamp co. this if from) on a white piece of paper and trimmed it out using my corner round on one end. 
 I backed it with Green to match the flower stems in the picture.  I also added a bit of Baker's Twine to the tag and a brown button to match.  I popped a number of layers for the sunflower portion of the card to make it look a bit more fancy.
 Love how this card turned out and I LOVE using my Cricut to accent my digital stamps.  It adds a special touch to the ever so adorable stamps!  Don't forget to stop by Some Odd Girl for the fun challenge!
