The Kraft Journal Color Challenge

Hi there!

How was your weekend?  

We have a new color challenge at The Kraft Journal this week. It's three colors and the colors inspired me to create an Easter Card. 

I started with a base of Brown Kraft Cardstock onto which I added patterned paper inspired by the spring color board you will find below. I then wrapped a length of Hand Stained Bias Tape around the card front and tied off in a fluffy bow adding a lavender button laced with Lavender Pastel Hemp Cord.  

A row of pastel buttons were added to the bottom which I also laced with Lavender Pastel Hemp Cord before adhering them.   Using some Easter die-cuts and a stamp set from My Creative Time Hello Chickie I created a little scene for the focal image. Lastly, I added some sequins for a little further embellishing.
Other Products Used
My Creative Time: Hello Chickie
My Creative Time: Stitched Grass Border
My Creative Time: 4x4 Journal Die & More Set
Buttons: Hobby Lobby
Patterned Paper: Scrap box
Here is the Color Story for this week's challenge! 
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 Color Inspiration 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.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a GREAT start to your week!
