Pin It

Happy Stump Day, hampers ... and welcome to another fantastic CAS-tastic Wednesday challenge! This week, we're inviting you to join us in creating a card using Kraft card stock.

Wow! This card is fantastic! love the kraft cardstock and the blue together!

Sharli said...

Hi Deb! Your card is beautiful - so elegant! The raised panel is very interesting - it makes the card very special with not a lot of effort! Well, I guess that's what CAS is all about anyway! The little touches of blue are perfect.

You know how gullible I am (I actually believe your Sheila stories!). So, SU has kraft paper they call "crumb cake"? Is that for real? Pretty cute name!

I linked to you today - your card is W-aaaaaaaa-y better than mine, but I was totally inspired by you! Hugs!
