Kraft based card

Hi everyone,

We are slowly getting back into our homeschooling routine so I'm going to try to get some crafting time in before time gets even more scarce!

I wanted to play along with the challenge over at A Blog Named Hero site. The challenge was to use kraft cardstock in your project. Here's the badge and my card.
I decided to make an Earth Day card. I wanted to use some pattern paper on a kraft base and then I just added some embossed mustard-colored cardstock and some ribbon. I used a text from the Bible that I printed out using different fonts and then inked the edges of that. I added a flower and a butterfly and the card was done. I then used some leftover pattern paper to decorate the kraft colored envelope with some faux stitching rub-ons, too. Hardest part of this card was getting the font on the text like I wanted it...took forever! But, happy with how it turned out...

Thanks for stopping by!
