Bugaboo - Just Because and a Krafty Challenge from The Spotted Chick!

Last week I created this card to put into my darling Daughter's lunchbox.  This week I've created another to put in my sweet Son's lunchbox on Monday.

I'm using Deacon Heart from Bugaboo stamps.  I've colored Deacon in with my Copics.  Using SU! Real Red as my card base followed by yellow and grey houndstooth paper - by Bella Blvd.  The keyboard paper is the flip side of the houndstooth paper.  So cute, huh??

I took a scrap of Kraft paper and using a tiny polkadotted background stamp from SU! and Daffodil Delight ink I added color and texture before stamping my sentiment from the MFT set Emma and Her Backpack

I layered and stitched everything using black thread and a straight stitch on my sewing machine.  I used natural colored twill tape and hemp twine as my fiber additions.

I used my Label 1 Nesties to add cuteness to the inside.  I layered white, then Kraft then the number paper (can't for the life of me remember whose brand it is!!) and a strip of yellow stock on the inside of my card and used another sentiment from the same MFT set.

I can't wait to put this in my Son's lunchbox on Monday!!

I'm entering this into this week's Krafty Challenge #49 over at The Spotted Chick!  

I hope you are all having a very happy and crafty weekend!!
