Kraft and text

Some weeks ago I played in another of our Hero Arts Flickr scrambles, and our hostess Janet asked us to use text on our creations.  That just so happens to be an element that I love to use, so I was able to make 2 cards that week, and in light of our kraft challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday blog this week, I thought I'd share them today.

Scramble92

supplies: kraft card base, a page from a book, Hero Arts Snowflake die, Miracle of the Holidays sentiment, Punch chalk ink, red sequins

I used the negative of the snowflake die and lined it with a trimmed page from a book.


Scramble 92

supplies: kraft card base, page from a book, Hero Arts Stitched Frame (flower), Artistic Borders (leaves), My Happy (sentiment), Doodlebug baker's twine and sprinkles

I stamped the leaves and doodled in the stems.

Thanks to Dotty Jo, I'll enter these into the Less is More challenge: Newsprint, too.....

Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope your weekend is going well!
