K is for Kraft

We are ready for the next challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!  Edna is making us use KRAFT paper in our projects.  

Edna didn't know that I had never made a kraft card before. I've used kraft paper in scrapbooking projects, but have never tried to scale it down for a card. I googled some images on the google machine and found some very lovely examples. I also decided that I liked red with my kraft. At the time I was also wearing a brown shirt with red flowers, but this may have been coincidence.   

Here is my card.  I was digging through my stamps and found the sentiment first, then I ran across the image and thought, perfect!  While I was putting this card together, I realized that one of our snarky challenge players had made a card with this sentiment for one of our challenges. I hope you don't mind that I copied you subconsciously! 

Please visit our challenge blog and take a peek at what my sisters have put together for this challenge.   If you like Christmas, this is the perfect time to stop by.

Details about my card: image and sentiment inked with Staz-On Timber Brown, colored with Distress  Marker Red Brick and white charcoal pencil.

ERMAGERD. I nearly spit my coffee due to my giggling. It disturbed the cat laying on my arms. That image couldn't be more perfect! I love how you coloured her - and me too I can't believe this is your first kraft card :)

Brilliant pairing of image and sentiment! And your very first kraft card! Red and kraft is always a good pairing. :)

This card is fabulous! I love the pop of red on kraft, the image is so beautifully coloured. And the sentiment is spot on, that would be a great stamp to have for so many different purposes :)
