Spring Fling at The Kraft Journal

We have another great challenge for you at The Kraft Journal!! The theme this week is Spring Fling.
All you need to do is create a Spring Fling themed project that includes either Kraft cardstock or products from Kraft Outlet to be eligible for the prize. You have until 6pm (Eastern) Sunday March 13, 2011 to get linked up. All participants in our challenges for the month of March have a chance to be featured on our "Feature You Fridays" posts as well as be entered to win a $15.00 Kraft outlet Store Voucher!

For this card I made a 4 3/4 x 4 3/4 card out of Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock and attached it to a  5 1/2 in scallop square that I cut on my Cricut. I made a fun little flower out of Glassine Bags which have a wax paper feel to them. I just crumpled up the scallop circles that I punched and then inked the edges with some watered down ink. I also tried a trick from Jan and dyed the seam binding  with the same ink to match. I stamped a Library Card with a great new stamp that I first inked up with some Distress Ink. I hope that you are inspired to create your own Spring Fling project and join us this week at The Kraft Journal!
