Kraft and Cream and a Sketch


Good morning blogland, and a big welcome to all my new followers.

"Kraft and Cream" (a gorgeous combination) is the subject of the challenge over at Simply Less is More, check it out there is a fab prize to be won from Pink Petticoat and some super DT cards on show.   CAS(E) this Sketch have as you will have guessed a sketch, as time is short I thought I would combine the two challenges and this is what I came up with.  



The cream oblong was cut out using  a Spellbinders Nestabilities die and then a round die was used to cut out the half circle.  I Stitched round the edges and tied string round the narrow middle section. This was stuck to the card with Sticky fixers.  The  Memory Box Chloe Stem was cut out in cream and kraft card and part of the cream  flower overlaid with part of the kraft flower.  The flower was placed in the cut out section, and a greeting stamped at the top.

I have come up with one or two variations on this card, may let you have a peek later.  I have had a request for 50 invitations for a 25th Wedding Anniversary and want to do something in this style.
