Let's grow old together

     These two look pretty happy don't they.  Something to look forward to for my hubby and I.  :-)
     Our challenge this week at The Kraft Journal is "Weddings/Anniversaries".  I couldn't resist using these love birds and this card will be stashed away for our anniversary in December--#27!
     I started with a base of Light Kraft Cover Weight cardstock and matted it with Buff Ivory Cover Weight cardstock and designer paper.  There's lot's of layers and a Copic colored Mo's Digital Pencil image.  I added a little lace and some buttons tied with Hang Tag String.
     Hope to see your creations in our entries this week.  Don't forget to use kraft or a Kraft Outlet product.  That $15.00 voucher we give away to one lucky person each month can buy you some awesome goodies to play with.  :-)
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Craft Your passion--kraft paper plus lace or ribbon
Love to Create--3 of something (3 buttons, 3 designer papers, 3 matted panels)
Make It Monday--anything goes
Addicted to Stamps--card for someone special
Pile It On--kick back and relax
Totally Papercrafts--lots of layers

     Happy Monday!


Supplies
  • Paper:  My Mind's Eye "Miss Caroline--Howdy Doody", Copic XPress-it Blending card
  • Stamp:  Mo's Digital Pencil "Tom and Tilly"
  • Ink:  Copics, Vintage Photo Distress ink
  • Tools:  Martha Stewart Photo Corner punch
