V.I.P.

     I sure hope this little guy makes you smile as much as he makes me.  I mean just look at all those chubs!  LOL
     Our challenge this week at The Kraft Journal is "Rock-a-bye Baby" and I created my card using a base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock that's matted with Buff Ivory Cover Weight cardstock and designer papers.  I added a corner piece over the image with E-Flute Corrugated Kraft paper painted with Crackle paint.  There are Natural Twill Tape tabs held on with brads that I lightly coated in gesso to tone down their color.  Then I covered them with some Stickles.  The DP panels are wrapped with Green Baker's Twine and  Canvas Fringe Ribbon.
     My image is from Mo's Digital Pencil and is called "Spit Happens".  I've used a sentiment from Create with TLC that just semed perfect for the expression on his face.  :-)
     Hope you'll join in our challenge.  Just make sure you use kraft paper or a product from Kraft Outlet to qualify.  You could be one of our weekly top picks or our monthly gift voucher winner.  Ya can't win it if you ain't in it!
