Thinking of You in Kraft

TGIF Peeps! This is my last Friday as a employed person. Sad but I am looking forward to some down time before the "job hunt" must begin.

Well, on to today's card. I used the sketch on the
Stamps and Smiles Fresh Batch Blog.. I missed a week or two of their sketches and I am glad to be back with it!

I started my card with a base of chocolate chip, followed by some kraft cardstock, then whisper white and then some Kraft DS paper. I used some of the textured Kraft cardstock from the Taste of Textile Paper Pack. I really love all the paper in that pack, so Yummy!!!

I stamped the tree from the Thoughts and Prayers Stamp set onto the kraft with chocolate chip ink and layered it onto some more chocolate chip. The sentiment is also stamped on the textured kraft with chocolate chip and punched out with the key tag punch. I layered it with chocolate chip as well.

I added some silver brads onto the image panel and then added my photo corner with more silver brads. Tied some chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon around the side and tied a pretty knot. I am really starting to get the hang of those. Thanks to those who helped me out with my bow knots!

The image/sentiment panel is up on dimensionals. I really love this color combo....who wouldn't?

Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!

I'm amazed that you are able to make a card with mostly Kraft and have it come out that good. I'm still getting aquainted with that color *LOL* Great job.
