The Kraft Journal #123 Use Any Sketch.



Good Morning!

{Woohoo, this card was selected as Top 3 at Craftin' Desert Diva's on 6/9/13...thank you I am honored}

For today's "Use Any Sketch" challenge at The Kraft Journal, I followed the sketch from The Paper Loft. I used a base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight onto which I layered a white embossed honeycomb panel. I distressed the edges for a shabby feel.  Next I used papers from the Kraft & Black Cardstock PadC-Flute Corrugated Kraft Paper which I painted white and distressed with the sander, and then I used the Old Newpaper Washi Tape  on the circles Before adding the circles to the embossed panel, I took a length of Black Twill Tying Tape and wrapped it around the card face horizontally and tied in a bow adding another bow made from Natural Hemp Cord embellished with a white paper rose. 
My final finishing touch was adding a handmade burlap rose and leaves which has a Memo Pin holding a Chipboard Flag Piece with coordinating Flag Banner Sticker for my stamped DeNami sentiment.

As mentioned, inspiration for this card comes from The Paper Loft May Sketch challenge. 
I am joining in at Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes. 3GirlJam - Anything Goes With Ribbon. My Craft Spot - Ribbon & Twine, Sunday {Fun}day - Linky Party, D.L. Art - Anything Goes Linky Party, Craftin Desert Diva's. - Anything Goes with Ribbon and Twine.

What a fabulous card, Tammy! I love all the neutrals and love the texture and dimension you've created here. The mixture of embossing and corrugated kraft is awesome. Love how you used the washi tape and memo pin, too, and your burlap flower is just stunning!

You're smart having combined this week's challenge at TKJ with a sketch challenge for this month. I struggle so much with sketches, and (as you've probably read from me)....I literally google search sketches and close my eyes and pick one- and just MAKE it work somehow. It's a true "challenge" for me to follow a sketch, but I'm blessed to have gotten through this week's challenge. My mind is also spinning as I think about the "Just For Him" theme coming up - I need to get my creativity flowing!!!
Thanks for sharing this gorgeous card in our challenge this week, Tammy. I'm always SO BLESSED and so grateful when you are able to stop by and share with us. Thanks for playing along, and have a great week!
