Cheery Lynn Designs - Kraft Challenge

Hi and Good Morning :)  Back again today with my card for our new challenge over at the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge blog where this weeks theme is  'Keep It Krafty' .  As always the winner will receive a brilliant $20 voucher to spend online in the Cheery Lynn Store.
I used a 6 x 6 inch Kraft Card base, and all the layers and dies were cut from one other additional card base so everything would match.  I layered Prima Romance Novel Papers and inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  I made the gorgeous bunting by using the Pennant die and cutting one layer in card and one layer from paper. 
The 'waste' from the paper sits perfectly on top of the pennant, and I still have the paper pennant to use on another project.  I coloured my image with Distress inks and a gold pen, and the background was created using the Fall Leaves embossing plate - I was really pleased with how this turned out, as its quite a subtle effect and didnt overpower the image or the rest of the design. 
I stamped my sentiment on one of the new sentiment frames as these are a perfect size for cards, and  layered 2 of Hearts, Mini Flourish, Dimensional leaves and a button, and finally added twine, card candi and a charm from my stash to finish.
All dies used on this project are:
You have until Sunday to join in, so lots of time left to enter our challenge and join in the fun, and dont forget there is always fresh daily inspiration from the other talented members of the DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog.

The shading on that gift box is superbly dimensional - & your colour scheme using the kraft is amazingly striking. I must say those banners are very different to other dies that I've seen.
