Double Trouble 57 - Kraft and Kids

Welcome to Double Trouble Challenge #57!

It's a "krafty" challenge this time around - the main theme is to use Kraft cardstock in your project. Please see the image below for further information - and if you require any clarification, the complete description is on the Double Trouble challenge site.

Our partner challenge (Crafting Happiness) runs one week challenges so there are two weeks of entries possible. Week 1 is a kids theme and Week 2 is a red theme. This post is for WEEK ONE. 

Kids theme plus Kraft (week 1)

I never have occasion to create cards for kids so this was a challenge for me. I decided to use a punny stamp set with ewes - there are lots of ewe images and puns that go with them. This is the 
birthday one...

I layered 4 pieces of Sapphire patterned paper on a Kraft stitched background. The ewe was stamped, coloured and die cut. The sentiment was heat embossed for some added interest. After placing the centre rectangle straight, I decided I liked it better on an angle. The corners of the the sentiment were rounded and I added a few white dots. 

Come and join us at Double Trouble and show us how you interpret the challenge listed above. 
I am linking my cards to the Crafting Happiness challenge as well.
