For this week's new challenge at The Kraft Journal Challenge Blog, "Copy Your Favorite Designer", I knew right away that I wanted to recreate a card from a crafter I've been watching ever since I entered the card-making and scrapbooking world; and this is the lovely and talented Melissa Phillips of Lily Bean Paperie. More specifically, I was inspired by this card Melissa created... "A Latte Love". You will fall in LOVE with Melissa's sweet style if you're not already a fan. I found it VERY appropriate that FOUR of our TKJ DT Members also chose to copy Melissa, and consider her their favorite designer. It says a lot about her talent, and how she inspires people.

My card all started with a Lunchbag Kraft Note Card that I covered with some patterned paper and then added a strip of Pink & White Stripe Washi Tape. Next, I took a Small Glassine Bag and filled it with colorful sequins to match my patterned papers. I ran another length of the Pink & White Stripe Washi Tape up the side of the Glassine Bag that was covered with a little hand-cut index card made from a scrap piece of Lunchbag Kraft Cardstock. I used lots of other goodies here from The Kraft Outlet including a Grungy Prim Tag and some Pastel Hemp Cord. I also used some lovely Papertrey Ink die-cuts to make my flower, stem and leaves as well as some miscellaneous rub-ons, a tiny Making Memories white metal heart clip (stash item), a Cosmo Cricket banner sticker, and a tiny Making Memories pink button in the center of my flower that has a snippet of Pastel Hemp Cord in turquoise blue.
