Loves Rubberstamps Card Challenge- Let's get Krafty!

I'm back with another card for Loves Rubberstamps and this week's theme is Let's Get Kraft! Use Kraft cardstock + another color of your choice! ** Our Sponsor this week is Eureka Stamps ** So this is my card which I had to make rather quickly, this Sunday was my Nephew's Sacrament of Confirmation so I made him this card. I started off using  Kraft paper for my base which was 5"x 7" finished card size. Then I used Graphic 45 Reflections paper for the rest, with the addition of my second color; gold metallic paper. The Design Team were given 5 images to play with from Eureka Stamps and I chose the Butterfly and Sunflower (to me it's a coneflower) so I colored it using Prismacolor pencils and I cut it out using scissors. I then cut out an oval using Spellbinders 'Lacey Ovals' and gold metallic paper which you can find Spellbinders here; http://www.lovesrubberstamps.net/category_261/Spellbinders.htm
I then stamped the sentiment using black pigment ink and gold embossing powder onto shimmery white paper. It's  from the set called 'Lily of Hope' from Flourishes which Laura has in the store seen here; http://www.lovesrubberstamps.net/item_85/LILY-OF-HOPE-Stamp-Set-from-Flourishes.htm
I cut this out using Spellbinders 'Large Deckled Rectangles' again Laura does carry Spellbinders in her store. I outlined the edge using Snickerdoodle Smooch ink by Clearsnap and laid this on top of another Spellbinders die called 'Framed One'. I added some gold metallic ribbon and bow that I found at Michael's!

Please don't forget to Check out Laura's store, she has some wonderful stamps and carries quite a lot of different stamp companies too! http://www.lovesrubberstamps.net/
