Again, I apologize for the very dark pictures. Its been raining here for the past two days and there is only MORE rain in the forecast for the rest of this weekend. I haven't been able to get a decent picture.

When I learned today's challenge was a KRAFT, PINK & WHITE Color Combo, I knew I had to use the Crate Paper 'Handpicked' patterned paper included in the Artful Delight 'September' Kit. Its ABSOLUTELY beautiful!

I decided to combined it with yesterday's TIC TAC TOE CHALLENGE


and added two buttons to my card. Don't forget that ALL challenges are open 'til September 30th, so there is plenty of time to join in.

Do you see that GORGEOUS crochet lace ribbon under my KRAFT button? Well, it was included in the 'September' Kit!! I just LOVE it!


This card is based on the Viva La Verve! September Week3 Sketch.


I also had soo much fun playing along with the September Diva Dare - Case - A - Diva, that I had to play again. I ended up CASING Diva Amy Sheffer's - again - Love at First Sip Card. I LOVED her distressed edges and how her sentiment mat fell outside of the card.


The sentiment was a FREEBIE provided by Ann from Raindrop Echo Designs at the Sentimental Sundays Blog some time ago. I used Photoshop to recolor the sentiment in KRAFT and PINK.


The beautiful "Cappuccino" colored Baker's Twine is from My Craft Spot.

For the inside, I went with a much simpler design than normal.
