Double D Challenge - TWINE

Hello Friends!
It's time for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!

Team Diane is hosting today and the theme is:


Here's the mood board Diane has created to help you get started . .  


 Look at all those beautiful spools of twine!
I just happen to have twine in my favorite color so that's what I went with today . . .

That's right ... of course I would have PURPLE twine in my stash and, it just
so happens this pretty butterfly image (recycled from a contribution card) was laying on
my work table just begging to be used!

This was a very quick & easy card with one exception ... can you guess what that was??
** Tying those itty bitty bows ... good grief!! **

I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun!

 Hope to see you there!

Oh I love it when someone uses twine. I looked around my craft room and there is not one spool of twine! I must remedy that soon! I love the way you used it here and your card is beautiful!

First of all Love this color! Gorgeous with the butterfly reused panel. Way to go! The tree strand of twine really makes for an interesting card. I would never have thought of that. Love it all.

Lovely card, Darlene! Love the tag tucked into the twine. The sentiment is perfect!

Gorgeous colours on your card and yes those little tiny bows. I make rabbits ears to make them small - it does help. Thank you for your kind comments on my blog - I love the inspiration I've found here and will be back for more.

I like the way you tucked the image in the twine like that, so neat, your little bows are too cute, I can only imagine how fun that was to tie those little bows but they top it off so nicely!

Great distressing and great use of twine! I especially like how one panel is under the focal image while the other 2 are on top! Great mix of texture and design and a very pretty card!

Judy Woodland said...

Well this is just stunning. Isn't that butterfly beautiful? Those colors are so rich, and I love how you have distressed the edges. And that twine is so pretty, so clever to make the bows on each strand. I, too, am very partial to purple! I knew I loved you for a reason.... :-)
