The Kraft Journal #177 Color Challenge - Smile

Hi Friends,

For today's color Challenge at The Kraft Journal, I looked at the inspiration photo and decided to start with images from The Journey Stamp Set by Precious Remembrance. What a special moment in time to be captured, so I thought of the camera in that set.
I started my card off with a card base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock.  I layered a beautiful piece of patterned paper over the base. I took a smaller layer of Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock to which I added a film strip background using Versamark Ink to give a tone on tone subtle appearance.
Next I took a piece of yellow cloud patterned paper and cut it into a banner adding it to the left side of the Brown Kraft Cover Weight piece.  I then added a Mini Gypsy Ephemera Label which I stamped the stars image in  Kraft Ink. I anchored these pieces with Old Newspaper Washi Tape. Next I added the stamped paper-pieced camera image giving it a handle with some Yellow and White Baker's Twine.  I stamped the smile sentiment on a black and white sticker label. For a final finishing touch I added  dainty pink and yellow roses. 

Below is the inspiration photograph. I sure hope you will be inspired to play along with us.  We hope to see your Color 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.
Please be sure to head over to the The Kraft Journal to check out the projects by the other talented ladies. 

Have a marvelous Monday!

Super pretty, Tammy! We spent the night in Colorado and we got a room with a balcony overlooking the Colorado River. I'm sitting here browsing blogs before we hit the road in a minute or so, and I wanted to stop by to say hello.
Have a blessed week!

Your card is SO adorable, Tammy! I LOVE all the layers, and that color combo is just gorgeous. I adore how you used the tiny bits of washi to anchor the journaling card. And love the paper piecing and twine handle on the camera. So, so cute!
