kraft. . . .

is not the cardstock that I reach for on a routine basis, but it does, indeed, work as a card base for certain designs.  Here is my card for the challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show this week:



This is the only Tim Holtz blueprint stamp set that I own.  I really liked coloring this with my Inktense pencils, which show up very nicely against the desert storm kraft cardstock from Simon Says Stamp.  The enamel dots were a gift from Lavon and I decided to use those colors for the cupcake.  (Thanks, Lavon!)

Have a good day, my friends.

I love the colors that you used. I would never dream these stamps would work together but they sure do. Love this.
