The Kraft Journal #57!

 Hello friends and welcome to today's new challenge at The Kraft Journal - #57 'La-La Luv You'!

For today's La-La Luv You card, I began with a base of Buff Ivory Cardstock.  Layered on top of that is a piece of Brown Kraft Cardstock which I inked with cream paint to create a time-worn look.  On top of these two layers, I adhered some pretty patterned papers and sewed around all the edges with a machine zig-zag stitch to create a patchwork effect.  Next I created a sweet little banner using die cuts from Buff Ivory Cardstock and patterned paper.  Chipboard alphas were glittered and attached to the banner.  Lastly, I die cut a tiny envelope from Brown Kraft Cardstock, inked the entire front, stamped a couple vintage images with Kraft ink and added pearls, lace, a button and Green Baker's Twine.

Please be sure to stop by The Kraft Journal challenge blog to be inspired by the other teamies projects this week and then I hope you'll have time to give our 'La-La Luv You' challenge a try!!
