Sew Excited !!!

If you heard a squeal a few weeks ago, it was me when I found out that the Kraft Journal wanted me on their Design Team.  I am so excited and so honored!
Sew for my debut card:

I don't use stickers very often but I have had these Tim Holz stickers, which were from the Kraft Outlet, for quite some time and since the challenge is Buttons and Bows, they seamed perfect.  The image and the buttons are all stickers.  This exact set of stickers is discontinued at the Kraft Outlet, but there are others to choose from that would be fun to use too.
The Measure Tape Washi tape was fun to use.  The bow is made with Hand Stained Bias Tape and I wrapped the center with my favorite twine, the Earthy Hemp Cord.
All of those elements are on a Vintage Dictionary Page which is backed by Brown Kraft Cardstock and the card base is Buff Ivory Cardstock.
As you can see,I sew love these products.  I hope you will head over to the Kraft Outlet to have a look.  And play with use with the Buttons and Bow Challenge.

Challenges I will enter:
Love to Create - love of ribbon
Sweet Stamps - favorite embellishment
Simon Wednesday - anything
Word Art Wednesday  - anything
