The Kraft Journal 147 - Color Challenge {Thankful}

Happy Monday!

For today's Color Challenge, at The Kraft Journal, I started with a card base of Medium Weight Kraft cardstock onto which I added a embossed panel of Buff Ivory Cover Weight cardstock.


I took vintage photo distress ink and sponged it across the panel with a ink blending tool.  A doily was added to the center of the panel.  

A length of red and white stripe ribbon was wrapped around the card front and tied into a bow adding a button and topping with a bow made from Metallic Twist Hemp Twine.  A pennant was created from brown designer paper and was added to the right side of the card front. I created a paper rosette from gray designer paper and added a metallic gray covered button.  Three flowers were added for further embellishing.  Lastly I used a small staple to fasten a leftover ribbon snippet to serve as a decorative panel for the "Thankful" sentiment from the Chit Chat Seasonal Word Stickers. I try to reuse every bit of leftovers I can! :-)
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 Color Challenge creations 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 sharing at Just B Creative - November Linky Party, Sunday {Fun}day - November Linky Party, The Ribbon Carousel - Holidays and Celebrations.

Thanks for visiting me!

How beautiful! This is fabulous, Tammy! Amazing texture and depth. Love the embossing and doily and paper rosette, and what a clever way to do the sentiment. I really love the bit of ribbon you backed the word strip with. That is awesome!

I love every inch of it, Tammy! I see you have the 'new' Wilton doilies, too. They changed the way they look, and I have to say I miss the old ones which were more frilly. What do you think?

Great card. Awesome flowers. Such a good color palette you've chosen.

Thanks for linking up in November's Just Because Linky Party.

Be blessed, Beckie
