Papercraft Star 10

♥♥♥ ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥

A clean and simple sketch is our theme this week at Papercraft Star. And today challenge 10 opens !

I turned it on its side, and confess, I just had to add stuff, I tried my best, but that little tag leaped right out of its place and onto the card. Ok, ok, so maybe I already had a little pocket there.

And for a CAS, I really did a lot to this card. (Mostly shop on the internet, and be smart enough to use my 40% off coupon at Ben Franklin to buy that Tim Holtz embossing folder.) The corner punch isn't (a corner punch), I just turned a regular border punch and cut on the corner.

Enter your submission between now and Saturday, 8/28 - then the voting begins. Final voting day is Monday 8/30. Be sure you check out the fabulous forums at Papercraft Star while you are there. And VOTE !!
