Thank You.....The Kraft Journal 134

Happy Monday! I hope everyone's weekend was great! We've been dealing with a lot of rain this past week and will probably be rained out for the next few days. I've been drying out in my craft room,so it hasn't been all that bad!

I am very happy to announce that I'm officially a part of The Kraft Journal's Design Team! They've welcomed me into the fold with open arms and I am very thankful to be a part of such a great and talented group!

A new Make It Monday also starts today at The Kraft Journal. This week, we're doing a color challenge. Use the colors in the picture below for your creation. Make sure you use kraft card stock or any items purchased at The Kraft Outlet shop.
Here is my card based on the inspiration picture:
I started my card with a base made with light kraft  card stock. After layering on some patterned papers and a scalloped die cut, I used a  small glassine bag, filled it with matching sequins and die cut the edge for a lacey look. I punched a hole in the folded over top and used two matching shades of Pastel Hemp Cord to secure it. I then adhered the bag to the front with foam tape,  added a small clothes pin, butterfly, green seam binding and a cute pink felt flower as embellishments. For the sentiment, I stamped a pink banner, adhered it to the front and finished it off with little pearl clusters.

Other supplies used but not listed above:
patterned papers-American Crafts
stamps-JustRite Papercraft
sequins-Hobby Lobby
butterfly-Martha Stewart Crafts
felt flower-Petaloo
pearls-Making Memories
seam binding-Hug Snug

 I hope you'll join us over at The Kraft Journal and link up your creation! Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
