Krafty Hello


I made this card for several challenges. The colors were inspired by the photo above, from the CR84FN Color challenge #12. Soft and pretty, and very feminine, don't you think? These would make great colors for an Easter card, too.

I used the Card Patterns Sketch #99 for this. I loved this sketch-it's a great design that I know I will use again and again. I think it's the scalloped border-one of my favorite things to include on a card. You could easily change this up by using a different border punch in place of the scallop. My scalloped border is actually a premade chipboard border from Technique Tuesday. As I try to use up some of my stash, I am finding lots of goodies that I had forgotten about! The chipboard circle, scalloped circle, and flower stamp are also from Technique Tuesday.
I'm lovin' my kraft cardstock lately, and this is my entry for the Kraft Journal's Anything Goes challenge this week. finally, it is also my entry for the new Altered Alice challenge blog to create a hello or goodbye card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Elegant card! Thanks so much for playing along with The Altered Alice. I tried to reopen the Link Tool but it didn't work, so I am manually including you as entry #16 for when I do the random drawing for the winner. So even though you don't appear in the list, you will be included in the drawing!

Pretty, pretty card! You really knocked all these challenges out of the ballpark here. Love that embossed kraft cardstock and love the scalloped border and big ribbon. Great use of that color palette. I really like the small touches of white added in, too.
Thanks for sharing this with us at the Kraft Journal. :)
