Enjoying the Kraft!

The lovely Jennie (aka THE-WIFE) sent me a couple of sheets of 12x12 kraft paper and I first played with it yesterday, however it has come out again today!! love it!

This card is a bit of a mix, the image I coloured last month but never felt it looked right to use so shoved it in a box, I pulled it out today and mounted it on a brown scallop circle which was a freebie from Tracy @ Dies to die for! I did some fake stitching around the scallops in a white pen which completely gives it a different look. I didnt want to use DP on the card so kept it basic by just using the kraft paper. I stapled on some garden Jute string from £land and stuck on a sentiment! Am I happy with the overall result? Yes I think I am! another card for the box which will probably sit there for months on end! lol

Now that is brilliant, I love it especially with the string, absolutely perfect for a little guy or a big guy too.It makes me think of jam jars and catching little fish etc.
