Papercraft Star #135

Time for a new challenge at Papercraft Star!  The challenge theme for the week is use your kitchen colors. My kitchen is mostly dark brown and cream with a touch of blue.  I found this paper from long ago in my stash which worked perfectly.  I so wish my kitchen looked like the inspiration photo below.....but unless the kitchen remodel comes with a personal chef...don't see that happening anytime soon! I would much rather be in my craft room than the kitchen!

My card was created with the sketch this week at the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.  The sketch was created by the talented Vicki Burdick.
