The Kraft Journal Challenge #30

     Our theme this week at The Kraft Journal is "Walk in My Garden".  My card is very simple.  I used a base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock.  I used my Martha Stewart scoreboard to score in a half an inch from all sides, traced those lines with a gold gel pen, and used my craft knife to make some slits and thread some ribbon through.  For the center, I printed out a sentiment from Rain Drop Echo Designs and cut it out with an oval Nestie.  All the flowers and leaves were punched from Mulberry paper.  I used a piece of copy paper to give the mulberry paper a little more thickness for punching.  I used my Copics to color the pearl centers for the flowers and added a pretty bow.
     So we want to see what kind of garden creations you can come up with.  you have until 6:00 p.m. EST Sunday to get your projects linked up fo your chance at a Top three pick, Feature Me Friday pick, and our monthly $15.00 Kraft Outlet store voucher.
     Happy Monday!
