the kraft journal

happy tuesday. this weeks challenge at TKJ is st patricks day or green 

i used kraft cardstock for the base of the tag that i ran thru my cuttlebug with swiss dots folder . i also did this on the  panel ( kraft cardstock) the shamrock is on, but thought it was too much so i ran it thru again a few times to smoosh it down. i added raffia for the ribbon which i added distress stickles to. i added a  scratch off sticker   ( i cut a 1 inch circle , added a lil  word onto that then adhered the gold scratch off onto that ( the kraft paper, raffia and scratch off can be purchased at the kraft outlet.). i used a sharpie for the feeln lucky. then added a cute felt arrow so the recipient will know to scratch away :)   i also used my cricut and a childs year cartridge for the shamrock. added a couple of green brads and a scrap of green plaid paper and colorbox fluid chalk.
thanks so much for checking this one out hope your days been a good one :) xxxshelly

How very cute! I just love tags. What a fun way to use the scratch away stickers. Love the embossing and the shadowed shamrock. The white highlighting adds a great touch.
Thanks so much for playing along with us at the Kraft Journal.
