Creating with Kraft

Caardvarks' current challenge is to create a card using Kraft and can you believe I have actually not used kraft before (gasp!). Well, I think I will definitely be using it a lot from now on...I love the earthy/natural feel it gives to a project. So, I played around last night with my new kraft cardstock, MME Penny Lane papers, and Unity stamps and this is what I came up with...
You can click on the card if you want to see a larger image and get a closer look at the details.
The stamps I used are from Unity's Something Within and Flirty Flowers sets. I have had this cute flower punch for awhile but haven't given it much love until last night. :) I used the little kraft flowers it punched out as accents on the ends of the striped paper strips. To give the punched image some color, I just adhered a piece of coordinating green paper to the other side of the card front.

I would love to hear your thoughts on my first kraft card! :) Hope you are having a great day...thanks for stopping by!
