The Kraft Journal Challenge #40

     Our theme at The Kraft Journal this week is "To Die Cut For".  I can't believe there's anyone out there who doesn't own at least one die.  LOL  I could spend a fortune on those things.  :-)
     For my card I started with a base card of my favortie Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock and matted it with Buff Ivory.  Next came some designer paper and then a Nestie Fleur De Lis pendant die cut.  It was cut from both Chipboard and Buff Ivory cardstock and glued together.  Then I matted with dp and some more brown Kraft.  The flower was die cut using Tim Holtz's Tattered Florals Sizzix die.  I added a big red button tied with some Earthy Hemp Cord.  The sentiment is another Nestie tag die cut and the finishing touch is a Twill Tape bow.
     So let us see your die cut creations this week for a chance at Top 3, Feature Me Friday or our monthly $15.00 voucher drawing.
