Pretty Papers at The Kraft Journal

Karen Letchworth for The Kraft Journal
Well, who doesn't LOVE some "Pretty Papers"?  I sure do! And for this week's Pretty Papers Challenge over at The Kraft Journal, I dug VERY deep into my stash and found these lovely patterned papers from Daisy D. Everything on my card started with a Large Lunch Bag Kraft Notecard.   After the pretty patterned papers, I attached LOTS of goodies from The Kraft Outlet including a bit of Natural Burlap Ribbon, bits of Black & White Polka Dot Washi Tape, some red and green baker's twine, and a cute little Tim Holtz Memo Pin.  I just love how using supplies from The Kraft Outlet makes creating cute cards and projects so easy!
Some of the other supplies I used on this card include a simple inexpensive white doily, a paper flower from Daisy D, a Die-Namics die-cut flower made with wool felt, a Teresa Collins Bingo card, a vintage button, machine stitching, a wooden embellishment tag (with you), and green Prima leaves.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek, and please be sure to join our challenges this week at both The Kraft Journal and Word Art Wednesday.  We just LOVE to have you join us and share your art with us at both.

Blessings to you,

  14. Hi Karen!

    Sorry to bother you with this but I am trying to post my card on the Kraft Journal contest this week and it states that the collection is closed. I was not sure who else to contact regarding the issue.

    Thanks, Karen!
