The Kraft Journal #63!

 Welcome to my blog today ... I'm so happy you're here for a visit!  Today, I'm excited to share a card with you that I designed for this week's The Kraft Journal #63 challenge - 'Anything Goes'!  I {heart} anything goes challenges ... they allow my creative spirit to soar!


For today's 'Anything Goes' challenge, I began my design with my all-time favorite color palette - pink and aqua - and a base of Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock from The Kraft Outlet that I inked around the edges with cream paint.  Layered on top of that is some pretty pink embossed and inked cardstock.  A paper doilie was added next, cut in half.  On top of the doilie pieces, I tied a snipett of Adelaide Seam Binding and a bow. 


Last, some lovely embellishments were added for the finishing touches on this card ... a sentiment tag backed with more Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock, some yummy aqua tulle, a couple of die cut shapes and glitter, a die shape cut from a piece of cardboard box and attached to the Adelaide Seam Binding bow with Natural Hemp Cording and a Tiny Wooden Clothespin, and two beautiful Antique Stick Pins.  



 This was such a fun challenge!!  Please be sure to pop on over to The Kraft Journal blog to be inspired by the other teamies' projects and then I hope you'll give our 'Anything Goes' challenge a try!!

Hugs!
