I rarely make cards that are vintage-looking or shabby chic, but I think this one might be close. The Kraft Journal blog posted a challenge to use kraft cardstock (their specialty) and a flourish of some kind. I have been "saving" this lined kraft cardstock for YEARS and thought today was the day to use it. In addition to the Kraft Journal's challenge, I was inspired by CASE Study #22. Many of the elements of my card were inspired by that challenge, such as the colors, the notebook edge and scallop border punches, the scrunched ribbon, the die-cut label, and the gems. See-lots of inspiration there! I also decided to play along with the 365 Cards Challenge #318 to punch a border on just the front edge of my card.
