Yum, yum cupcakes

     It's a "Just for Kids" challenge this week at The Kraft Journal.  My mojo was on short order when I made this card so it's pretty plain and simple.
     I started with a base of Brown kraft Cover Weight cardstock and matted it with Buff Ivory Cover Weight cardstock and designer papers.  I added a punched border of the Buff Ivory and ran a line of Dark Jewel Hemp Cord along the top.  The image is a cutie patootie Bugaboo piggy with cupcakes that I colored with Copics and matted on more Brown Kraft.  For the sentiment I layered the two cardstocks and added a button from my stash tied with Hang Tag String.
     Hope you'll pop over to The Kraft Journal blog and check out the other DT projects and then come join in our fun.
     Happy Monday!
