I Love of Kraft!

I love Kraft cardstock! Do you love it, too? It seems to go well with EVERYTHING! I can definitely go on a binge of creating Kraft cards. I have to stop myself! Well, not today. Stacey's color challenge for this week gave me permission to use my well-loved Kraft.

Aren't these colors just great? Neutrals with a bit of color. I was very excited to work on this card!I also got to use my herringbone paper from the Sweet Pea pack! Along with Love & Happiness rub-ons from SAB a few years ago. My sentiment is from the PTI set Green Thumb. The rick rack is vintage. PLUS...I got to try the squashed flower technique! I used tissue paper for mine. I love making flowers and trying EVERY type of flower embellishment.So, what kind of beauties will the rest of the Crew create? Let's go check them out....
