Gettin' Krafty Day Seven

I LOVE Kraft cardstock! I usually use it in a very "clean" way, but this time I "dirtied" it up a bit. I sponged white craft ink all over the edges and distressed the focal piece of cardstock as well. I stamped the balloon image from Birthday Surprise in white craft ink and then stamped the sentiment over the image in Onyx Black Versafine. I think the stitching around the edges and the hemp twine tied through the buttons gives this card a very earthy feel, which contrasts the elegant feel of the Birthday Surprise stamp set.
