Timeless Tuesday - Use Kraft

Good morning dear blogging friends.  Thank you for stopping by...I hope you are all well.
It's my second week as guest designer for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge...how time flies!
This week the very talented Cindy hosts the challenge, and she has asked us to create something using Kraft paper/card.  So without further a do, here is the card I made...
The base of my card is cream.  For my second layer, I fussy cut a piece of kraft card. Third layer is cream, cut with the largest Spellbinders Floral Oval die, fourth layer Kraft, and finally my top layer of cream.  Onto this I stamped flowers from Flourishes - Flowers and Frames and Summer Blossoms stamp sets. My sentiment is from the Flowers and Frames set, and my butterfly from Butterflies and Blossoms set.
I stamped my images using Memento - Rich Cocoa, then coloured with ProMarkers. I stamped my butterfly onto a separate piece of card, coloured with PM's added a little glitter, then fussy cut it out and adhered it with pop dots to give some dimension. Finally I added a double bow using lilac organza ribbon from my stash.

Please visit the FTTC design team blogs for some fabulous inspiration...and why not join in with the challenge?

Thank you for stopping by

So lovely Sasha! It's funny because I almost bought those Spellbinder dies yesterday. I wasn't sure how they looked when cut. I guess I'll go back and get them now! LOL. Thanks for your recent visit and kind words. Have a great day!
