Take Your Pick

We have a fun challenge this week at the Kraft Journal - Take Your Pick.  Pick three of the following (and make sure you use Kraft or something from the Kraft Outlet):
patterned paper
die cut

My picks:  (1) patterned paper, (2) die cuts, (3) glitter.  And just in case using Stickles is cheating for the glitter category,  I also used white.
I love these bears, sentiments, and papers by Tracy Sjolander.  The snowflakes in the paper are blue and Kraft (IRL) even though they look a little yellow in the photo; perfect for the Light Kraft Cardstock base and sentiment cut out.  With the way Trudy faded the edges of the image, it is fun to super-impose the bears image onto the patterned paper before printing - it just blends so nicely.
I never use glitter but I do use Stickles which I added to the flame and the snowflakes.  It is hard to see but I dotted some on the snowflakes on the BG paper too.  I think Stickles counts as glitter;  it rubs off like glitter so I never use it for OWH cards.
The little white snowflakes at the ends of the sentiment, cut out with a Spellbinder die,  are eyelets.  It isn't often I use eyelets but these are so cute and I really like how the blue shows through the center.
Are you ready to pick three from the Kraft Journal list?  We would love to see what you come up with.  The challenge begins today and ends Sunday, Jan. 18.
