Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge - Handmade Embellishments

Happy weekend!  Today sure felt like a long time coming, but we made it!  And it's time for our weekly Kraftin' Kimmie challenge.  This week the amazing Melanie is our hostess and she wants us to use handmade embellishments on our projects.  

I decided to keep it simple this week and went for a bit of a clean & simple look.  In fact, I tried my hand at a one layer card.  I stamped Lovely Lulu onto some Kraft paper and coloured her with my copics.  I do find that I need to use slightly darker colours with Kraft (i.e. my skin colours are E00, E11, and E13 - darker than I'd usually use on white cardstock).  I cut a couple flowers out of felt using a die, and cut a button with another die.  I layered them all together - and voila!  I played around with a sentiment for a bit, but just couldn't find a placement I was happy with - so I left it off.

You can see all the fabulous challenge cards from the Krafty Girls over on the challenge blog.  I hope you'll play along - you could win a stamp from Kitty Kapers!  Thanks for stopping by!
