my two favorite colors! SS & FWF!

For Sharon's Stamp Simply Challenge this week we were to use Kraft (not a challenge at all!) and black! (again, not a challenge!) I paired it up with Friends with Flair Friday- kill 2 birds when you can people!

For my card- I used Unity's KOM which has this awesome phrase!! (Thanks sooo much Lisa!!) I had been struggling with my mojo a while back, so I thought to just use some fun pattern paper and ribbon and call it a day- My favorite cards are often definitely along these lines- QAE~


So.....those of you who normally don't so kraft- I hope you give it a try! It's my GO-TO color!!! :)
