Life Happens Over Coffee

Hello friends! If it is Monday, it must be time for another challenge at The Kraft Journal! This week you can choose your challenge as all that is required is for you to follow a sketch and link it to your blog so we know what you did! I chose this cracker from the September Viva La Verve challenge (wk 1) and will be submitting it to them as well!
I was getting ready to cut a long card but realized I had a set of blank cards and envelopes I hardly use and used that base instead. I stamped the coffee "stain" from Verve's Better With You on the base using Distress inks, cut three rectangles from Light Kraft cardstock and a few circles from an old sheet of patterned paper. I tied each of the panels with baker's twine and added some stickles for a glittery touch.

Don't forget to link up your take on your favorite sketch by Sunday for a chance to win some great prizes, including gift certificates to The Kraft Outlet!!

Supplies: Cardstock - Light Kraft (TKO), Baker's Twine (TKO), Ink - Distress Inks (TKO), Riding Hood Red, Basic Black (SU!), Card/Envelope (Hero Arts), Stamps - Better With You (Verve), Stickles, Dies (Spellbinders), DP (DCWV), Cuttlebug, Distressting Tool (Zutter)
