Warmest Winter Wishes

Monday Winter greetings! At The Kraft Journal this week, we have a Winter challenge for you!!! So please share a card or project with us using Kraft cardstock or products from The Kraft Outlet
I started with my favorite Brown Kraft Coverweight cardstock and cut and folded to an A2 size card.  I pieced together my two patterned papers joining them with a piece of felt ric-rac. I gave it a little more embellishing by adding buttons and laced them with Natural Hemp Cord
To make the focal image, all products are from My Creative Time (except the sequins which are from my stash). I started by die-cutting a stitched oval frame from white cardstock and stamping the sentiment in the upper right corner in black ink. I die-cut and pieced together the skates adding white glitter to the cuffs. I randomly placed a few sequins in the oval for a little added decoration.

Last, I took a length of White Twill Tape and wrapped it around the card front and simply finished it off in a bow. 

Please be sure to head over to The Kraft Journal blog to see the projects created by the other talented ladies.  We hope to see your Winter creations in the gallery this week for your chance to be showcased in the "Feature me Friday" post as well as be entered to win a $15.00 gift voucher to The Kraft Outlet store.

I am editing to note that I get to play in Darnell's challenge because I realized that I played with new goodies when I created this card. The stamps and dies are new...Yay! So I am joining in at NBUS Challenge #3.

Have yourselves a wonderful day!
