Make it Monday with The Kraft Journal - Flowers #172

Good Monday Morning to you!

This week at The Kraft Journal we have a new challenge for you, and it's Flowers, I incorporated flowers a few different ways, I hand-stamped a flower image, added a paper flower, and lastly created a flower from Brown Kraft Text Paper and Vintage Dictionary Pages.

I started my card base using The Kraft Outlet's  Brown Kraft Cover Weight onto which I added layers of Buff Ivory Cardstock and a damask print patterned paper joined by a row of felt hearts. I took a length of Black and White Baker's Twine and wrapped it around the card front two times and tied in a bow adding two pearl stick pins, and a paper flower.

As mentioned, I stamped a beautiful floral image (PTI) on the Buff Ivory Cardstock.  I added a Vintage Black Journaling Card to the right side of the card front embellishing with buttons, adding my handmade flower, leaves made of Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock. I used a journaling sticker peeking out from the flower for the greeting from Paper Sweeties Occasion Sentiment Set.  Lastly, I rounded the bottom corners of the card for a finishing touch.

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 flowers 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 sharing at Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes, Creative Knockouts - Lots of Layers, Just B Creative Crazy - May Linky Party.

I hope you have a terrific week!
