You're Old School And Cool-Make It Monday 141 The Kraft Journal

Happy Monday! I hope your weekend was nice. We've been having some beautiful,but warm days here in Georgia. Summer seems to want to linger for a while longer,but the crisp blue sky gives the days an Autumn feel. I'm hoping for some cooler temperatures very soon.
It's a new week and a new challenge at The Kraft Journal. This week's theme is to use bows,buttons,or bangles on your creation.Also remember to use either kraft or any item that you purchased at The Kraft Outlet store.
 For this week's challenge, I made a vintage style card. I started with a card base made from Brown Kraft Cover Weight Stock. I added a layer of black card stock and layered on some vintage inspired papers,rounding all  corners. After wrapping a black and white gingham ribbon bow around the card, I stamped and embossed the sentiment in white on a Black Board Tag. After adding a bit of ribbon through the top hole of the tag,I rounded the corners of the tag and adhered it to the card with foam tape.I then embellished the top of the tag with an assortment of flowers,buttons threaded with Pastel Hemp Cord,and sequins.

Don't forget to link up your creation this week, all followers of The Kraft Journal blog who link up their projects are entered into a monthly drawing for a $15 voucher from The Kraft Outlet. You also have the chance to have your work featured on Feature Me Friday. I can't wait to see what you make!
