Make Today Beautiful....Make It Monday 135 At The Kraft Journal

Happy Monday my friends! It's time for a new challenge at The Kraft Journal. For this week's challenge we would like you to be inspired by your favorite designer:  Make a project in their style or pick a specific project of theirs to use for inspiration. Remember to use something kraft or anything  purchased at The Kraft Outlet store.

I have so many designers that I admire, some may be well known to you and others are my crafting friends. For my card this week, I chose to be inspired by the wonderfully shabby chic style of Cherry Nelson. Her work can be found on her blog, Cherry's Jubilee. I've been a fan of hers for quite a while and everything she makes is just magic to me!

I started my card with a base made from Buff Ivory Cover Weight card stock and layered vintage inspired papers on top.I die cut a piece of Vintage Dictionary Paper into a label shape and adhered it to the middle. After adding a die cut doily, I then added a stamped label featuring a vintage image of two little girls. I used a white resin frame to frame out one of the girls. After wrapping pink seam binding around the card, I used blue and pink Pastel Hemp Cording to thread the blue button and accent the middle of the bow.

~~Supplies used not listed above~~~
patterned papers, card stock sticker-Melissa Frances (Classic Elegance 6x6 paper pad)
