A little kraft-y challenge

Hi All! Two cards in two days! I'm on a role!

I decided to play along with the Paper Players CAS challenge and to link it up to the Kraft Journal Any Sketch challenge as well. Here's the Paper Players challenge sketch:

And here's my take on it:

The card base and seed packet are made from Kraft Cardstock. The pennant layers are patterned papers from Close To My Heart's Buzz & Bumble and Claire Collections. I used the stamp set from the Buzz & Bumble Workshop On The Go for the flowers and seed packet. "Seeds" is stamped in White Daisy Exclusive Ink and colored with Outdoor Denim, Sorbet, Honey, Sweet Leaf, and Cocoa Pigment Inks and a Q-Tip. I like the soft, chalky look. The flowers are stamped on White Daisy Cardstock in Brown Stāz-On ink and sponged with Blush, Crème Brulee, Sweet Leaf and Hollyhock Exclusive Ink. I fussy cut everything and grouped them together. The Seeds are popped up with dimensional adhesive. The sentiment is from the "A Garden" stamp set and is stamped on White Daisy Cardstock in Outdoor Denim Exclusive Ink. I cut the cardstock into a little pennant and edged it in Goldrush Exclusive Ink. I then layered it on a pennant cut from Outdoor Denim Chevron Ribbon and tucked it behind the flowers. I added a little wooden button with bakers twine from the Mini Medley Wooden Accents collection for a little pizazz.

Here are some close-ups of the details:

 I hope you enjoyed my little card. Have a wonderful FRIDAY! Happy March!
