Clean and Simple Challenge.......{TKJ}{Post #2}

Good Morning and Happy Monday everyone!!!

(for my Trendy Twine Back to School card please click HERE~ It is so super adorable if I can say so won't be dissapointed!)

It is time for a new challenge over at
And this week the challenge is:
Clean and Simple~ Otherwise known in the bloggy world as CAS
Since I LOVE making CAS cards, this challenge was a fun one for me!!
I used the Hypothesis from Fusion Card Challenge
and incorporated the sketch as well as the pink, green and kraft colors from the other~
So I guess you could say I fused them both! LOL!!
Here is my card....Hope you like it!!
I recently won this adorable C.C. Designs ~Pinwheel Birgitta from my friend and fellow DT sister Karen over at her challenge blog~ Word Art Wednesday and I could not wait to ink her up! Isn't she precious????
Once she was colored using my copic marker and matted on a scalloped oval using Blackboard Stock Paper  I went about assembling my card. I started my card by using a piece of Light Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock as my card base and then adding a mat of white cardstock.  Next I layered some Blackboard Stock Paper  with the pattern paper I used from Fancy Pants~Wonderful Day paper pack. Then using more matching paper from the same stack I die cut 3 banners using My Creative Time's~Vintage Stitched Label Dies. Then to finish my card I added a button from my stash and threaded some white hemp from the Brights Hemp Cord pack.

So there you have it....
my inspiration for this week's challenge.
I hope you have enjoyed my card and will play along with us!
As always I have linked all the supplies I used from The Kraft Outlet throughout my description.  If you have not checked out the store yet....make sure you do! There is so much available, the prices are so reasonable and shipping is super fast!!!
