Practical Scrappers Kraft Cardstock Challenge

Hi everyone, I want to show you what I did with the self portrait I took for the SPC No. 2  (Self Portrait Challenge No. 2. ~ See the post directly under this one!!)  I decided it would be perfect for the Kraft Cardstock Challenge (June 9th) over at Practical Scrappers..  So here is what I came up with..

I found some great papers that had print on 'em and knew they would be perfect with this photo and challenge!!
Here are a few close ups...

Here you can see the SU Kraft CS which I ran through my crimper and distressed with Tim Holtz Distressing Ink..  Part of the MME Lost & Found Collection, some Mulberry Street Petaloo Flowers and a couple of Prima Flowers over a Prima Vine, and a metal Butterfly from Hobby Lobby, which I added crystals to it to bling it up a little...

Here you can see one of my ribbon treatment with a Spare Part Ribbon Brad which I added the Crystals over it, and some of the Martha Stewart Daisy Fan punched edge..

Here are a few challenges this will qualify for...
SPC No. 2 ~ Self Portrait with newspaper
Practical Scrappers ~ Kraft Cardstock Project
A Spoon Full of Sugar ~ Flower Power
Charisma Cardz ~ Something that Flies
ABC Challenge ~ V for Variety (3 different embellishment)
