Ahhhhhhh...........Kraft!!

No, I am not talking about Mac and Cheese -- although I do like that! I am talking about KRAFT paper! LOVE that! I go through a lot of it -- my favorite brands are PaperTrey Ink and Stampin' Up!

Today's SCS Color Challenge was to use Mellow Moss, any White, and KRAFT!
Here is what I came up with:

I stamped my image in Craft White ink, and then embossed with White Embossing Powder. The corners are pierced with an Ornare template. I added pearls to the poinsettia middles as well.
What do you think?

This week I am holding auditions for "A Christmas Carol: The Musical" (How many things are called "Fill in the Blank: The Musical"?? It's funny to me!). Anyway, it is the show based, of course, on Dickens' traditional story, and it is so much fun! It is a great musical to show your family -- it was made into a Hallmark movie starring Kelsey Grammer. I tell you though -- remember Jason Alexander (George from Seinfeld???)? You should hear him sing Marley's ghost's song, "Link By Link." WOW! I never knew he could sing! Anyway, I am excited about this show -- it should be a lot of fun and my daughter and husband are trying out! More on this later this week!!

Have a great day!! I intend to! :)

Stamps: Gifts of Christmas (SU)
Paper: Kraft, Mellow Moss, unknown DP
Ink: Craft White
Accessories: Nestabilities Labels, White EP, moss grosgrain ribbon, white satin trimmed organdy ribbon, Hero Arts pearls, Ornare piercing template

What a beautiful Xmas card! I love the image stamped in white, the piercing, and the pearls. Its truly breathtaking. But unlike you, I despise Kraft paper. I always struggle with it myself, yet I admire the works of art other people can make with it.
