The Kraft Journal #199 Leftovers

Hi Friends!

We have a new challenge this week at The Kraft Journal and it's called "leftovers". Many of you will be having plenty of those in your kitchen at the end of the week. :-)

I had a dear friend in mind when I sat down to create my card today. My heart is heavy for her as she lost her fur baby. 

I started by looking at what was on my desk for a starting point. I had a die-cut border laying there. I don't want to think about how long it's been on my desk because the rest of it I used over a year ago or longer.  I found a piece of patterned paper in my scrap pile to add to the top of the card and the rest fell into place very quickly and easily. 
I started with a Brown Kraft Cover Weight card base onto which I added a panel of patterned paper from my scrap pile to the top of the card. As mentioned, I had a die-cut border left over from a previous make that I attached to the red-floral patterned paper. Next I wrapped a remnant of Black Twill Tape tying in a bow which I embellished further with Red Baker's Twine and a cream button. Lastly I took scraps of Blackboard Stock Paper and Buff Ivory Cardstock to die-cut a paw to add to the center. On my desk just waiting to be used was a banner cut from Light Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock that I added to the upper right corner of the card. All that was left was to stamp the sentiment on the front. I used stamps from My Pink Stamper Everyday Life.
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 "Leftovers" 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 Fantastic week!
