The Kraft Journal #69!

 Welcome to The Kraft Journal #69 - 'Use Any Sketch'!  WOW -- what an awesome challenge we have for you this week ... full creative license to go out and find any sketch that catches your fancy and create something fabulous with it for your chance to win!!

 For today's 'Use Any Sketch' challenge, I created my card based on the current inspiration photo layout at CASE Study.  I began this card with a layer of Brown Kraft Card Stock as the base, layered with a piece of white card stock and next layered with another piece of Brown Kraft Card Stock which I embossed and inked to create definition and corner rounded all card stock pieces.  Next, I layered rows of Lille Paper Tape onto a scrap piece of Brown Kraft Card Stock to create the tag shape - snipping the bottom ends into bunny ears.  A Yellow Library Card was stamped in a pink floral pattern on the left side, a sentiment was stamped on the top right corner and machine sewing was added for more dimension.  A Hinge Clip was painted with creme paint and added to the Yellow Library Card and a sweet pink satin bloom was adhered under the clip.  

Lastly, I created a pretty little floral embellishment with a paper doilie, a couple piece of chipboard pieces, a tiny butterfly die cut from a snipett of Brown Kraft Card Stock and layered with a Tiny Bottle Cap, button and twine. 

Now ... let's see what yummy sketches you can find to create with this week!  Remember, in order for your submission to be eligible, you must use Kraft card stock or any item from The Kraft Outlet Shop!  Be sure to hop on over to The Kraft Journal to check out the awesome inspiration from the other teamies this week!
