Did you have a wonderful weekend? I sure did... enjoyed a BBQ with the fam, which is always good times and my sis even made a delish German Chocolate cake for Mother's Day... yum!
Ok, well my card today is a bit different from my norm... the Kraftin Kimmie challenge this week is to use the kraft color in some way. It could be cardstock, ribbon, pattern paper... you name it, as long as it is kraft colored you are good to go. Before I even got started I knew that I was going to use one of the new KK fairies that were released last month. I loved them all and just had to have them but this was the first time that I've been able to ink one up... for shame! ;)
Clarabelle ended up being the first of the bunch to flutter onto a card and I think she is a total cutie!
Once that decision was made it was time to figure out how I was going to incorporate the kraft element onto my card. I've always really liked the look of adding rub ons to kraft so I made the choice to skip the pattern paper and create a scene for Clarabelle using only rub ons. This way the kraft is still a prominent part of the design but I could add some interest to it. I ended up using these great Basic Grey Offbeat rub ons because the weedy floral motif seemed like the perfect fit for the look I was going for. Add some rub on stitches to create a border, a sprinkling of gems and this card was done! There's definitely not as much going on here as with my usual cards but I'm pretty darn pleased with how this one came together. :)
Okey dokey, time for me to get ready for work... hasta la vista!
