Kraft and Text at CAS(ual) Friday

Hello kind crafting buddies,

Here is my card to show you for today which I will enter in CAS-ual Fridays which is all about Kraft and text. Now this card has been made from a clothing tag and I actually clicked a picture to show you the proof, lol.  Those little wooden beads were introduced to me by Aleeza's ex teacher and I just love them. So off I went to the store and bought a few small packs. I added black photo corners to match with the black eyelet and the sentiment is from Wonder House which is also my new buy. I have sponged the punched paper from a scrap with Tim Holtz Antique Linen and the text has been given the same treatment.
I have to say that I had lots of fun creating this card :-) and hope you like it too.


Down below is the tag...

Here is a card that Aleeza's present teacher showed me to admire... sent to him by his mom who makes greeting cards in Canada. It is so beautiful and it looks brilliant in real life with the tiny diamonds on the flowers. I thought I must share it with you :-)

I will enter my card in the following challenges:

Have a pleasant day,

Monica

These are lovely, Monica! I especially like your budding tree. It reminds me of the little "cottony" trees that bloom here in the Spring. Your grass is very COOL! This is a wonderful card! hugs, de
