The Kraft Journal #68!

 Welcome to my bloggity blog today, friends!  Today I'm pleased to share a fun little card with you all that I designed for this week's The Kraft Journal challenge #68 - 'Just For Kids'!  

 I began my design with a card stock base of Buff Ivory from The Kraft Outlet ShopNext I layered some patterned papers and Lille Patterned Paper Tape onto a piece of Brown Kraft card stock, machine zig-zag stitching around the edges.  I wrapped a piece of Black Twill Tying Tape around the top of the card, typing the end into a pretty bow.  Next, I created a sweet little flag out of a Garnet Stick Pin, Flag Banner Numbers Stickers and a Tiny Bottle Cap ... I stuck the Flag Banner Numbers piece onto a snipett of Buff Ivory Card Stock so the backside wouldn't be sticky. 

 To finish the design, I created a mini banner using a couple pieces from the Black Banner Stickers and a red glittered punched heart shape.  Some Black Baker's Twine was wrapped around the bottom of the card and a sentiment tag was tied on. 

This card will be 'just perfect' for a dear little friend of mine who will be turning TWO very soon!  It's girlie, cute and fun ... just like the sweet little recipient!!

Please be sure to stop by The Kraft Journal to check out the awesome inspiration from the other teamies this week, and then I hope you'll have time to play along with our 'Just For Kids' challenge!

I love your card! There are so many details that I like here, but to mention a few I would say that the colors and theme are so great together and I think the stitching is a really nice detail-

This is so sweet! I love the vintage images and all the fab details and embellishments you added. I could look at it for an hour just so I wouldn't miss anything!

This is a very well balanced composition. Your 2 year old may not appreciate its artistry now, but eventually she will. Blessings!
