Kraft w/Ribbon.....{3GJ Challenge #23}

It is a happy day over here....
I am hosting the new challenge over at the
this week's challenge is~ 
Kraft w/Ribbon
This week's challenge will be open for 2 weeks, August 2nd~ August 15th, so plenty of time to create and share!!

Our challenge is being sponsored by
3 Girl JAM
with a $10 Gift Certificate to the 3Girl JAM store!
So here is the card I made based on this week's Mojo Monday Square sketch....
I started out with a Kraft cardstock base and cut all the layers out using a mix of kraft and designer paper from Basic Grey. After all the pieces were cut, I ran the mat through my sewing machine and placed those aside for assembly later. I die cut my Stitched Tab Die from My Creative Time and stamped my sentiment, also from MCT~ Gift Card Sentiment stamp set.
Next using my Silhouette studio I added this cute digi from By Lori Designs, placed a border around him and cut him out so I could color him with my copic markers and embellish his bow using some waterfall stickles. 
Finally to finish up my card I added a nice double bow of Mistletoe Crinkle Ribbon from 3GJ and a custom made Custom Fastener from The Kraft Outlet. I added some midnight blue stickles to the center and they added the completed mat to my Kraft cardbase. 

Supplies Used:
Paper~ Kraft (TKJ Outlet), Basic Grey~Bowties
Stamps~ By Lori Designs~ Lollipop Tanner, My Creative Time~ Gift Card Sentiments
Inks~ Copic Markers
Dies~ My Creative Time~Stitched Tab Die
Embellishments~  Mistletoe Crinkle Ribbon (3GJ),  sewing machine, waterfall and midnight blue Stickles, Custom Fastener (TKJ Outlet)
