Kraft & Twine Birdie

There was a large part of my goofy self that wanted to turn this into 'Tie ONE on' but that bout of food poisoning is in the recent enough past that adding adult beverages still seems like a very bad idea ;) SO, The Kraft Journal  would like to see us interpret the theme 'tie IT on', and CAS on Sunday would like us to use Kraft + Twine - could two challenges go together better?


Supplies: stamps (bird, sentiment) from PTI; Vintage Photo distress ink; Paper Smooches twine; kraft & white card stock; printed vellum from Hot Off The Press (talk about ancient stash...ahem...); classic small circle Nesties

Finding the torn piece of kraft cardstock in my stash got this whole card going - finding that that sentiment fit perfectly across it - the die cut circle was already on my desk from another project...seriously, this was a great big bouquet of happy coincidences here! And as for that vellum - it's from a book of vellum papers put out by Hot Off the Press, and for fun I looked for the copyright on the book - 2001. Wow!

The Kraft Journal's challenge ends on Sunday at 6 PM Central.
CAS on Sunday's challenges run for 2 weeks, so you still have until August 2nd to enter this one. 

xoxo,
Jessi

That is quite the combination of coincidences -- and to result in such a classy card! Like the torn elements.

This is outstanding, Jessi! I always loved the cads I made with torn paper. Oh, wait, boy that didn't sound right. See what happens when one single letter is left out!!
