A Colorful Challege at The Kraft Journal

I admittedly struggle with color challenges, but then again - it's fun to truly CHALLENGE yourself.  So, I started my card with a Large Buff/Ivory Note Card and then added strips of card stock representing each of the colors shown in the beautiful inspiration photo.  Next, I stamped a Christmas scripture sentiment from My Craft Spot's Joy To The World Stamp Set onto a piece of coordinating Buff/Ivory Cover Weight Cardstock and layered it onto the same colored card stocks from the inspiration photo.  Next I added a Crinkled Seam Binding bow topped with a button that has Red Baker's Twine tied through it.
I also inked the edges of my card and added some coordinating colored sequins for some extra sparkle and pizzazz!  It's really quite simple, and the Kraft Outlet makes it easy to create cards from simple to very detailed - all depending on your style or mood.  I really hope you will treat yourself to some new Christmas goodies from the Kraft Outlet, and then come play along in our Color Challenge this week.  You aren't required to use ALL the colors from the inspiration photo, it's just a starting point to give you ideas.  To be eligible for the monthly prize of a $15 gift certificate, you simply need to use either a kraft item or something sold at the Kraft Outlet.  That's easy enough!

I'm sharing this card in the following:
