Many years from now

     Isn't this a fun stamp!  It's from Art Impressions Rubber Stamps.  My best friend and I went through a year of Weight Watchers a few years back and did so well on it.  Unfortunately we've let a few of those pounds creep back and we're back on the wagon again.  Sometimes I think we can read each others minds cause she sent me a hilarious email the other morning about National Girlfriends Week while I was creating this card with her in mind.  This may very well be us many years from now.  :-)  LOL
     Our theme this week at The Kraft Journal is "Anything Goes", and this is where I went.  LOL  The card base is Light Kraft Cover Weight cardstock mattted with Buff Ivory Cover Weight cardstock and some wonderful Crate Paper DP.  The flower panels are matted with more of the Buff Ivory.  The image is matted with both and the sentiment is too.  I added some Natural Twill Tape around the decorative panels.
     The image is colored with Copics and Prismas and I added some gold and silver with GellyRoll pens for their jewelry. The candle flame has a teeny tiny bit of Glossy Accents on it too.
     We'd love to see your "Anything Goes" projects this week.  Just remember to use kraft paper or a product from The Kraft Outlet to be eligible for a Top Three Spot.
     Pop back in tomorrow to hear some special news I have to share with you.  Ahhh the suspense!  LOL
