Kraft and Colored Pencils

Dear Ones~
Whew - did we ever have some weather yesterday. A white-out blizzard after pouring rain. Just kill me now. And I was in Traverse City with my BFF, so we had to drive the 50 miles back to Grayling in it. I was never so glad to get home.

Today's offering has been made for the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge. This week it's to color on kraft with colored pencils. I LOVE this technique AND this look. Here's my card:

I discovered I don't really have any line art PTI stamps that would work for coloring in with pencils, so I chose to use this image from Melanie Muenchinger's STV stamp set Fabulous Frame. However I did use PTI's Graceful Greetings for the die cut greeting. The flower image was heat embossed with white before coloring. I LOVE the effect it gives!!!

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Kraft and Ivory Card
SU Dapper Denim Card
Authentique Something for All Seasons Patterned Paper
GKD Fabulous Frame Stamp
Primacolor Pencils
PTI Graceful Greetings Die
Spellbinder Scalloped Square
SU Nesting Squares
Darice Striped BG EF
Stash Twine
Judy Dots
