The Kraft Journal Challenge #20

     This week's challenge at The Kraft Journal is "Clean and Simple".  Whew!  I have to tell you this was hard for me.  I kept wanting to add more stuff and had to remind myself--CAS!
     The base of my card is Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock.  The mat is Buff Ivory Cover Weight cardstock.  I used some pretty Basic Grey Capella papers matted on more of the brown kraft.  The image is a lovely camellia I stamped on vellum with copper ink.  It doesn't look coppery at all, but more of a soft pink which is really pretty with the kraft and buff.  I added clear embossing powder to the ink before drying with a heat gun.  The butterfly is covered with the same copper ink.  I used some of the Natural Twill Tape to add a little decoration at the bottom of the card.
     So now you know.  It's CAS week so show us your take on that challenge and get it linked up by 6:00 p.m. EST Sunday.  Each time you play you go into the drawing for a $15.00 store voucher from Kraft Outlet.
     Have a great week!
