Clean And Simple Challenge #18

A Color Challenge using pinks/coral and kraft plus one other color of your choice is today's CAS Clean And Simple Challenge at Splitcoaststampers:

I knew this was going to be a BIG challenge because the only KRAFT I currently have is little pieces. Uh oh. So I knew I had to use small pieces of Kraft. So, eventually I went with these 1" squares that I used a corner punch on.

I stamped 5 of them with a VersaMark pad and sprinkled Clear Embossing Powder then used my heat tool. It gave a glossy and darker look. So it gives some diversity to the Kraft, having two different shades.

Now what to do with it, how about buttons? So I rummaged through my collection pulling all my pink ones and sewed them on with DMC floss.

For the ribbon, which is totally scrumptious and is from Clear Dollar Stamps: I made two loops and crossed them over and pulled each end through makin a bow and pulled the ends around to the back of the card. Cool huh? I saw someone do it recently on SCS and gave it a try ( I did have to play with the bow a bit to get it looking close to perfect).

Thank you for visiting.
