Summer Birthday {The Kraft Journal}

Good Morning Friends,

It's the first day of school here, but I am still hanging on to summer as long as I can!

Today, I have a new card to share with you this week for The Kraft Journal's Color Challenge. I took the color inspiration literally "Watermelon" I started by using Blackboard Stock Paper for the card base which I layered a red cardstock and a black and white polka dot patterned paper.

I took a length of Red Baker's Twine and wrapped it around the card front several times tying off in a bow. I stamped the "Happy Birthday" sentiment (My Creative Time) in a stitched oval label die (MCT) and placed just above the Red Baker's Twine.  Next I die-cut some decorative layered label dies to be the backdrop for the watermelon. I used the Preserves Cricut Cartridge to cut it out.

Here is the color inspiration for this week.

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 Color Inspiration 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!
