Pretty Papers.......{TKJ}~~~~{2nd Post}

Good Morning and Happy Monday everyone!!!

~if you are looking for Day 4 of the My Creative Time July Release Sneak please click HERE or scroll down to the next post~

It is time for a new challenge over at
And this week we want to see your
Pretty Papers

I LOVE pretty papers and tend to hoard them...LOL! Don't we all right??? So for my card today I used the sketch from Deconstructed Sketch #109 and made a Christmas Card. Hope you like it!
And came up with this card...... Hope you like it!

I started out with a Brown Kraft Cardstock base and added some layers of designer paper from My Mind's Eye~All is Bright . You know me..I couldn't let my card go without some added stitching, so I ran my mat through my sewing machine adding zig zags between each of my different pretty papers.
Next using my Cameo I cut 2 circles, one in the brown kraft cardstock and the other in the matching designer paper to stamp my sentiment from 
I further embellished my card using some Cream Twill Tape, Red Metallic Twist Hemp Cord , some felt flowers and leaves from my stash and a gold blinged up Custom Fastener.

 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!!!
