Kraft + February Challenge

There is a new challenge in town, and it's called Kraft +, and it's fun!!!!!!!!!!!
There has been much anticipation about this one, and Sandra Wallace and team have not disappointed. So the challenge is to use Kraft paper as the background, and use the colour palette as directed for the month. What a beauty to start with, loved this colour combination a lot!
These colours were so nice to work with. I chose this photo of my nephew Ethan when he was just a little baby, a few years back, the colours were perfect for this photo, in my personal opinion. I chose to use texture paste in my background and then spray over that with mists to create a soft background. Just a touch of patterned paper, quite old Kaisercraft scraps that I had , in just the perfect colours, and then to embellish, even using flowers and a hint of pink. I think it worked.
Thanks for looking, and any comments that you may leave.
