Challenge Up Your Life - #5 Kraft Cardstock

Enjoying some extra time off work for the holidays, I came across this awesome challenge blog. I had already told myself that I would try new techniques and accept more challenges in 2015. This is the 1st challenge I came to so here we go! This challenge is to use mostly kraft cardstock on your project. Being a crafter that loves the bright colors, this was definitely a challenge :-) 
 I added gold and clear embossing powder to the flowers for a little interest.
Paper: The Paper Studio - Sunbeam Meadow Kraft Paper Pack
Sentiment: Hero Arts - Messages with Flourish
Gold & Clear Embossing Powder
Gold Gems 

This little pig image is from the Craftin' Desert Divas -Just Pigcause stamp set

The deer and tree dies are from Impression Obsession. I think I will practice with black and white inks to give them a little more dimension.
There is still plenty of time to join the challenge. Hope you are having a crafty day!
