Vintage Valentine {The Kraft Journal}

Hey There Friends~

Good Morning! It's a new week and that means a new challenge at The Kraft Journal this week. Our theme is Valentines. I decided to go Vintage featuring products found at The Kraft Outlet
I started with a base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock which I adhered to the heart patterned paper.  I used both Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock and Buff Ivory cardstock to frame the darling focal image which comes from the Seasonal Salvage Sticker Pack. Just below, I stamped the Happy Valentine's Day sentiment from WPlus9 in red ink. 
Next, I took a length of Oatmeal Cream Hand Stained Bias Tape and wrapped it around the left side of the card front and created a fluffy bow which I embellished with a button laced with Red Baker's Twine and stamped images from DeNami Design onto a Scalloped Grungy Prim Tag.  Lastly I added a red heart stick pin for a special Valentine 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 Valentine 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 also sharing at The Pink Elephant - Anything Goes, 613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes, Really Reasonable Ribbon - Hearts and Ribbon, D.L. Art - Thankful Thursday Valentine

Hope you have a wonderful week!
