Heartfelt Thanks For a Yummy Colour Combo

I saw this colour combo somewhere along my recent journeys in blogland I (think it as Keesh's Inkspirations), and just had to use it!  Red, Kraft and white - totally yummy!!  Unfortunately my card doesn't say yummy to me so I'm going to have to go another round with this delightful combination.  So....for now, you get stuck with this one...sorry :(

I used an old favorite set of mine, Heartfelt Thanks.  It is a two-step set, which can be a pain in the butt at times, but I must say I think this is the best two stepping I have ever done - that includes the dancing type too LOL!   Even more amazing is the fact I eyeballed it!!  Yup, no Stamp-a-ma-jig on this one. 

I pulled out Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch and went to work.  The Kraft panel is has one of the flowers from this set stamped in VersaMark and I crimped the red panel, even though it is hard to see in the picture.  A Martha Stewart border punch down the side helped extend that panel and also added a little something.  Some polka dotted ribbon and brads finished things off.

Have a fabulous weekend, everyone!

Great eye-ballin'! That really is a pretty color combo...I'm seeing so many colors paired with kraft (or whatever the new name is). I think it's crumb cake, but it will always be kraft to me - lol!
