The Kraft Journal - Anything Goes and DeNami Designs Theme Challenge

Hi!

* If you are looking for my DeNami Designs Pretty Packaging Blog Hop Post, click here and for The Ribbon Reel Design Team Post click here.*

Today start's a new challenge at The Kraft Journal.  Since it's a busy time of year, we are keeping up with making things easy over at The Kraft Journal this month...how about Anything Goes as long as you use KRAFT!  

I took the opportunity to create a birthday card since I need one for a friend.  I started with a base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock which was layered with some pretty Graphic 45 paper. I took a left over die-cut label that was cut from some Buff Ivory Cover Weight Cardtock and cut the ends and adhered to the top and bottom of the card face. I took a length of Natural Twill Tape and tied around the card front and finished off in a bow. 

Next I stamped the Birthday Cake image from DeNami Designs, then die-cut the squares from Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock and Buff Ivory Covery Weight Cardtocand inked the edges.  
The final finishing touch was to add the Happy Birthday sentiment by DeNami Designs.

I am also joining in the fun at DeNami Designs for their last challenge of the year.  It's a Theme Challenge which is Celebrations.

I hope you will play along with our Anything Goes challenge this week at The Kraft Journal.  All those that participate in our challenges for the month will have a chance to win a $15.00 gift certificate from The Kraft Outlet....and you also get a chance to be considered for The Feature Me Friday artist post on The Kraft Journal blog!

I hope you have a blessed week!
~Tammy~
