Pick Three at The Kraft Journal

I always enjoy the "Pick Any Three" Challenges, and as usual, I picked more than just three items from this week's list.  I decided to include five items from the list including a Bow, Embossing, Lace, Chipboard and the color Blue. I started my card with a Large Buff Ivory Note Card and added a piece of blue patterned paper.
Next, I pressure embossed a piece of coordinating Buff Ivory Cover Weight Cardstock.  I added a piece of burlap trim and a length of cream lace.  I also created a flower using Vintage Dictionary Pages that I die-cut and inked.  To the center of the flower, I attached a bow using Natural Hemp Cord and attached a Jenni Bowlin Icon Flatback.  The sentiment is a rub-on that was applied to a scrap of Buff Ivory Cover Weight Cardstock using my Bone Folder Tool that I backed with a scrap from a Vintage Dictionary Page and secured to a piece of Precut Small Chipboard to help it stand out.  Finally, I tied a piece of Natural Hemp Cord around the edge of the sentiment strip.  I hope that you will play along on this week's challenge.

Have a great week, and thanks for stopping by.
