Happy Birthday, Dad!

Hi everyone! Today I have a card to share with you that I made for this week's Kraft Journal challenge - Welcome Fall! And, since my dad's birthday is on Thursday, I made this card for him!

The card base is brown kraft cardstock which gives such a warm feeling to the card. A shipping tag was stamped with a big, birthday sentiment and the edges were distressed with ink for a soft touch. Decorative papers and coordinating stickers give it a fall look, and the card is finished with a wrap of hemp cord.

Link up by Sunday for a chance to be one of our Top Three of the week and to have a chance to win a Kraft Outlet gift certificate! All you need to do to play is to use kraft in some way and/or to use products purchased from the Kraft Outlet. If you haven't been by, I encourage you to check them out! There is a wonderful selection of products to choose from!

Supplies: Stamps - Say it Loud (WMS), DP/Stickers - Harvest Collection (Reminisce), Cardstock/Shipping Tag/Distress Ink/Hemp Cord (TKO), Ink - Chocolate Chip (SU!)
