The Kraft Journal #169 Pinterest Inspired

Hello!

I hope you are getting your week off to a great one. It's time for our new weekly challenge at The Kraft Journal. For today's "Pinterest Inspired" challenge, I went with some inspiring words!

Here is my card:
Here is what inspired me:
I started by stamping feathers from the Precious Remembrance stamp DIY Stamp Set in pastel colors onto a white cardstock panel with distressed edges. At the bottom, I stamped the forward moving arrows in aqua ink. I die-cut a piece of Vintage Dictionary Paper into a row of scallops randomly stamping a paint splatter in pink ink. Just above the scallop trim, I added a row of pink felt stars next wrapping Pink Baker's Twine around the card several times.

I stamped an inspirational sentiment on a white tag which I anchored with Hand Stained Lilac Lace Bias Tape dressed up with a Custom Fastener and snippets of Vintage Dictionary Paper.

After my focal panel was complete, I added it to a white cardstock base with distressed edges using foam mounting tape.

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 Pinterest Inspired 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.

Have a wonderful day!
