The Kraft Journal 112 - Favorite Color with Kraft

Hello!
{Blessed that this was a winner at Word Art Wednesday on 3/20/13)

Wow, here we are at Monday again! Today's challenge at The Kraft Journal is "Favorite Color with Kraft" I love White and Kraft together, but since that was a recent challenge, I thought I would share another love of mine which is Kraft with Red and Cream. I also adore Black and Kraft together and I think that is classy too! But stepping away from the neutrals, there is something about red and kraft together! 

I started this card today, by taking a piece of red star patterned paper from my stash and distressing the edges. I then added the panel to my Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock. Using Buff Ivory Cardstock, I printed some red gingham papers from Cupcake Cards and Crafts, which I cut a small panel and distressed the edges.  I added a die-cut doily from which I cut out of Lunch Bag Kraft Text Paper to add to the top and bottom of that panel. 

Using stamps and dies from WPlus9, I stamped a frame onto Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock onto which I added those delicious strawberries which were cut from Buff Ivory Cardstock.  A button laced with Natural Hemp Cord was added to the sentiment banner. 

Lastly, I took some Natural Hemp Cord and wrapped it around the top of the card and tied off in a bow.  

Please be sure to head over to the The Kraft Journal to check out the projects by the other gals.  We hope to see your Favorite Color with Kraft Project in the gallery this week for your chance to be featured on our "Feature me Friday" post as well as be entered to win a $15.00 gift voucher from The Kraft Outlet store.

I am also joining in the fun at: Sunday {Fun}day 7 - Anything Goes Linky Party, Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes

Have a Marvelous Monday!

What a fun card, love the yummy strawberries. I want to play along with this challenge but find it so hard to have to pick one color as I love Kraft with everything! Your red really pops with the Kraft and has a nice, homespun look.

Tammy,
Such a beautiful card. the strawberries, brown paper and distressing really work well together.
I am so thankful to finally have a computer. Windows 8 has a few challenges and it has a bilingual keyboard which is a wee bit different. It has been a very long three weeks and I have missed seeing your beautiful artwork.
God Bless you and yours,
