The Kraft Journal - Bangles and Bows


The challenge this week at The Kraft Journal is ...

Bangles and Bows !

What a fun challenge, and the opportunity to do a little jewelry making too !

Here is my take this week...

and once the tag is taken from the little pocket ...

Cute sentiment !

I have been busy making candy, so a chocolate colored card was definitely in the works for this challenge !  I began with a Lunch Bag Kraft Note Card, and adhered some Black and Kraft Card Stock design paper.  I added some tape, a stamped sentiment and popped up some matted design paper for a pocket.  Into the pocket I slipped a Small Kraft Shipping Tag, on which I finished the sentiment, and added a little pin along with some seam binding.  I completed the card with a lightly inked rose, some Natural Hemp Cord tied in a bow, and a bauble of beads, which can be detached and added to a purse zipper pull.  Some  dark pearls have been added at each corner. 

Oh, and I did color the flowers with Copics.
