Week 38 Sugar Creek Hollow "Use Kraft"

Happy Saturday Friends!!
It is week 38 at Sugar Creek Hollow and we would like to see you use "Kraft Card Stock," in your Vintage or Shabby chic style creations this week. 
I started out with a wood bell shape Christmas ornament, which I painted one side pink, and covered the other side with kraft card stock.  Here is a look at my finished Vintage Chic Ornament.
(short post
I used some Ivory Jute ribbon, brown sugar baker's twine, penelope lace from Really reasonable ribbon.  Blue bird image is one I altered from the Graphic Fairy.  I applied the card stock to the 41/2" ornament with glue.  Then I sanded the edges, and inked it with Ranger's Vintage photo.  Added all my embellies, then added some mica flakes to give it a little sparkle.  I really wanted it to be a more "Natural or Nature" looking ornie.
Here is a look at the back.  In all honesty, I painted the ornaments pink first, and was going to paint them in the shabby chic style and then list them on ebay, but then changed my mind and decided to add the kraft paper.  I am happy with how it turned out.
Here you can see one of the tiny kraft card stock flowers I punched and added a champagne pearl center.

I can't wait to see what you create for our challenge at
