I love Kraft paper and this challenge to-day was perfect! The background technique is from Mr Holtz (I can't think of the name though). You ink a piece of parchment with distress ink, spritz with water then press card-stock into the mess (don't drag or smoosh it around). I used a daisy stamp from Joy Crafts and some flourishes from Stampology. The die cuts are probably one of the first dies from Provo craft that I ever bought. I found some kraft DP from Mikes that I had forgotten about...so it was just like getting 'new' stuff!!

Fabulous card design...before I even talk about your floral panel, Sue. Love the graph paper-like design on your Kraft and the corner accents are lovely. Cutting the 2 side corners off the tilted square and moving them off a bit is GENIUS.....so much more pleasing IMO than a solid square. Your bg for the daisy silhouette turned out beautifully with your TH technique.....TFS how you did it.

This reminds me of black ironrod with the scroll details......Smart girl to use the graph paper to line up the cut die....I've been trying like you to use up my stash of too much stuff. Thanks always for your kind words and inspiration.

Sue, I love that background and thanks for describing the technique! What a wonderful card design using your dies! I love the way you cut the corners and matted them separately. This is so imaginative!
