CAS-ual Fridays Challenge 76

I've never played along with the CAS-ual Friday challenge.  This week's challenge is to create a clean and simple (CAS) card using Kraft.  One of my favorite color combinations is Kraft and white, so I whipped up this card in about 10 minutes....can't get much more CAS than this!


I cut a Kraft panel slightly smaller than the 5.50 x 4.25 inch card base and backed it with a piece of white card stock. I cut a 1/4 inch strip of dark brown to go across the card, then adhered two leaf stems cut with the MB meadow leaf die.  I looped a jute string around the panel and tied my button on with it.  The sentiment is from PTI.  Super simple...and very quick and easy!  I think this card would be perfect for a guy (and that's a difficult card for me usually!)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate your visit and your comments!  Until next time...

Hugs!

Gorgeous colour combo Susan and not one that would immediately spring to mind, but it works fantastically well. Love the sponging around the edges of the kraft card. My snow e/f has just arrived.....yippee!

Really stunning, Susan! I love the white leaves on the Kraft, especially with the white frame accent peeking around. The rustic twine is a perfect touch!

I've been so busy being a goofball for Halloween and catching up today with WOYWW that I totally forgot the deadline for CASual Fridays is (was) today. I hate to miss one, especially a Kraft one. Why am I telling you, you might ask? Well, because I keep a hat with my blogging friends' names in it and I draw a name when I feel a whine bubbling up. Ding, ding, ding, YOU are the winner!!!
