gettin my kraft on

i just got krafty crafty...i just had some fun! :) ha ha!

the latest challenge over at a blog named hero is all about using kraft on a project! and i love the challenge and i love my card! 

i also wanted to enter this in the moxie fab focal point challenge!

i made a square-ish card with asymmetrical corners, for starters, so what's not to love about that?!

i used a cloud die cut and then used some washi tape to dress it up like a rainbow! then i popped up the whole cloud for some dimensional fun.

the sentiment and sun image are from the hero arts stamp set, "sky's the limit" (love that set!). i heat embossed them, because i LOVE the way white heat embossed things look on kraft paper, so i couldn't  resist! 

then, i even added some distress to the edges with "old paper" distress ink. i told you...i'm all about distress inks right now! i know, i'm like super late to the party, but i'm glad i'm here now!! ha!

so that's it! i hope the card made you smile! that was my goal!
