Class of 2013.........{The Kraft Journal}

Good Morning and Happy Monday everyone!!!
It is time for a new challenge over at

This week's challenge is... 
Clean and Simple or CAS
and anyone who know me and my style, knows that this is one of my favorites!!!
Anyways it is graduation season so I thought I would get a jump on making some graduation cards...Here is one of I am sure a few more to come :)
Hope you like it!
So here is what I did.... I started out with a Brown Kraft Cardstock base and added a mat of black and white cardstock (all from my stash). I had this beautiful paper kit from "DCVW~ Graduation" that I used to layer the bottom of my mat. To cover the break from the pattern paper and white cardstock, I added some Black Twill Tape, a double bow of Natural Hemp Cord and embellished with a Custom Fastener  blinged out with some gold stickles.
Finally I used My Creative Time~Follow Your Dreams stamp set for the sentiment and numbers. 

So there you have 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!!!

Also don't forget about the awesome Linky Party going on over at
I have had the honor of being Tara's Guest Designer for this fun Ribbon or Twine challenge and would LOVE to see all your projects being linked up!
There are some awesome prizes being offered!
