A Color Challenge at The Kraft Journal

This week at The Kraft Journal, we're having a fun Color Challenge using three GREAT colors - RED, WHITE and BLUE.  I chose to create a fun card for this color challenge, and  I used LOTS of great Kraft Outlet products to make it.  I started with a Light Brown Kraft Note Card as my base, and topped that with a coordinating piece of Light Kraft Cover Weight Card Stock and some patterned papers.  I hand cut a star into one of the papers and added some red, white, blue and silver sequins.  Then, I added a stamped sentiment to a piece of Light Kraft Cover Weight Card Stockand finished my card by tying several lengths of lovely Black Baker's Twine around it, and into a bow. 
As some of you already know, our middle daughter is getting married in July.  I'll be on a short break this summer from designing at The Kraft Journal; but my dear friend, the talented Stephanie Wright, will be filling in for me.  You will LOVE the sweet cards she shares with you, and I really hope that you will stop by her blog, Steph's Scrap Happenings, to welcome and encourage her.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and God bless the USA!
