I'm Krafty!

I really try not to do this but knew I'd never be able to make two separate cards for two challenges this week. It has been one heck of a week and I've been in offsite meetings for work for the past two days! I feel really lucky that I was able to make this card in the middle of making our pork chops and roasting green beans for dinner tonight!! :)

So, the two challenges I made this card for were the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge ("Austrailia") and the Mojo Monday Challenge. It was a hodge podge from the beginning and it became quickly apparent that this was destined to be one card! I knew straight away that the CSCC card inspiration was the amazing love story between Sarah and both the Drover and Nullah ("I sing you to me" touches my heart every time I hear it and love the creations the DT came up with using it!!) The challenge was to incorporate kraft which doesn't feel like a challenge because I love it so much!

I then looked at the Mojo Monday sketch challenge and decided I just had to attempt a circular card (my very first!!) I always wonder how all of you talented crafters make the round cards and I'm not quite sure I got it right. I made a hinge out of the back panel but lost a lot of interior room. I've tried in the past to use my Spellbinders on a folded piece of cardstock and think I may need some extra practice with that technique. I really think that is the way to go.
