The Kraft Journal #164 - Color Challenge Hoppy Easter

Hi Friends!

Wow! Here we are at another start to a new week!

For this week's "Color Challenge" at The Kraft Journal, I saw the colors and thought spring which made me think of Easter. :-)))
I started by adding a distressed piece of green polka-dotted paper to a base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock. In one of my many scrap piles, I had a piece of patterned paper that had most of the colors in the inspiration photo you can find below.  I distressed the edges before adding it to my card front.  Next I added a length of Natural Burlap Ribbon to the front embellished with a button and a bow from Pink Baker's Twine
I created a tag using Buff Ivory Cardstock and stamped a sentiment from Paper Sweeties Jelly Bean Time in a ray pattern using multiple inks adding a die-cut easter egg adorned with pink hearts. I added Pink Baker's Twine to the top before anchoring it down with foam adhesive.  I felt this card needed a  little something else, so I took a length of Cameo Beige Bias Tape and created a fluffy bow embellished with a pink button and more Pink Baker's Twine.  Finishing touches include adding a small pennant made from Buff Ivory Cardstock and pink heart to the upper right corner.

Here is the color inspiration photo:

Please be sure to head over to the The Kraft Journal to check out the projects by the other talented ladies.  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.
