Congratulations to the Perfect Couple and a Winner......{The Kraft Journal}

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

This week's challenge is... 
Felt, Twine or Burlap
Since wedding season is upon us, I wanted to incorporated the theme for this week's challenge~Felt, Twine or Burlap to make a wedding card. I followed the sketch from Deconstructed Sketches
And came up with this card...
I started out with a Brown Kraft Cardstock base and added several layers of pattern paper using Theresa Collins~Summer Stories designer paper. Then using a Mini Burlap Tag, I cut the bottom to the shape I wanted and adhered the burlap to my mat using my hot glue gun. Since it is a  wedding card, I used an image from my favorite digital stamp company~Bugaboo stamps and only added minimal color to the image, just enough to add some color. To further embellish my card, I added some Metallic Twist Hemp Twine, a big glittery button and some small bling. Finally, I stamped my wedding sentiment using My Creative Time's~Many Greetings stamp set.  

So there you have inspiration for this week's challenge.
I hope you have enjoyed my card and will play along with us!
