krafty crafting

Good morning!  Hope your weekend was a great one.  Two challenges again today:




Typically, I don't use kraft very often in making cards.  A Blog Named Hero has challenged us to do so.  And, I am also entering this in the Hero Arts clean and simple challenge. 





The Hero Arts Good Friends clear set was used for this card.  I must confess that I have very seldom used any of those tiny stamps included in some of the sets.  So, I decided to use two of them for this card. 
I added some white pencil and glitter to them for some pizazz, but it's hard to see in my photo.

Thanks for visiting!

This is one of my all-time favs of yours! So fresh and clean and a perfect design! That lace is the perfect base for those lacy flowers - great texture and perfect way to balance your design. This is a winner in my book! May have to CASE this, if you don't mind!
