OWH Midweek Throwdown

Hi everyone! I thought while I'm off work I'd also play along with the Midweek Throwdown over at the Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps Blog. This weeks challenge is to "Get Your Kraft On". We're being challenged to make cards using kraft plus one or two other colors... along with kraft I used white and pink. 

The card base is white cardstock layered with a 1 3/4 inch x 5 1/2 inch strip of patterned paper. Using the Corner Rounder Punch I rounded the lower right corner of the card base and kraft cardstock. next I finished one side of the kraft cardstock using the Scallop Edge Punch then added three 1 1/4 inch x 1 1/4 inch squares of coordinating patterned paper. The butterflies were punched out of white cardstock using the Monarch Butterfly Punch. The sentiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. To finish off the card I add some dots along the scalloped edge using a black glaze pen.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
