Halloween Greetings-The Kraft Journal Make It Monday Challenge

Happy Monday! I hope your weekend was great! We are finally getting some cooler weather here in Georgia! Fall is finally here, thank goodness! We're kicking of a new Make It Monday challenge at The Kraft Journal. This week is a color challenge and yes, it's fall colors! Make a project using the colors included in the graphic below. It doesn't necessarily have to be a fall or Halloween themed project, but if you need an excuse to,go right ahead!
 My  Halloween card is chock full of items from The Kraft Outlet! I was able to literally interpret the picture part of the challenge by using a sticker from Tim Holtz's Seasonal Salvage Stickers. The first step in building my card is to start with a base made from Brown Kraft Cover Weight Card Stock. After layering on the patterned papers as shown, I built my focal point by layering a Burlap Rectangle under a label die cut from Chalkboard Stock and then the cute pumpkin sticker mentioned above. After adhering it to the right top of the card, I added a black and orange seam binding bow to the left side.I accented the bigger bow with a smaller one made from Black Chevron Twill Tape and some button strung with orange hemp cord from the Brights Hemp Cord pack and black from the Earthy Hemp Cord Pack. The Halloween sentiment sticker was placed along the bottom and is also from The Seasonal Salvage Stickers collection.

I hope you'll join us this week at The Kraft Journal and show us what you make!
