Caardvarks Kraft challenge ~

Caardvarks current challenge is to use Kraft cardstock on a card. This card has kraft on the front, under the acrylic overlay, and it's also matted w/kraft on the inside. The chipboard frame is by Basic Gray. I embossed it to look silver. Flowers & crystals are Prima, pop dotted bead is Blue Moon and ribbon is Offray. Give it a click for a nice, clear view.





You know how sometimes you make a card and you think to yourself "that's cute", or "this turned out nice" and that's that. And, then...other times you make a card and you're really pleased? Well, I am really pleased with this card. I wanted something different. I had spied this Blue Mood bead at my jo-ann's a while back. This week, it was 40% off, so I picked it up thinking maybe it would inspire me. I love this bead & I love this card. Yay for feeling good about creating!

No title, I'm calling it an all occasion card.
Thanks for stopping by!
