For Mom and Friends With Flair

I had the afternoon off and spent it making cards.  I made this card with the Trendy Twine April challenge in mind.  I'm entering it in Crop Chocolate's challenge this week, too -- a neutral color and twine, plus I used the sketch from cardabilities blog so I'll enter it there and a couple of other Mother's Day and Spring challenges.  Also, Color Me Creative is having their 3rd birthday celebration.  I broke out the Copics so I could participate in their first challenge  of the weekend. Here's my afternoon's work...


I got some Trendy Twine in the mail yesterday.  I have to tell you, it's my newest addiction!  I bought the Spring Mini and just had to break it out of the package.  It's soooo pretty.  I used all three colors on this card -- limeade, tickled pink, and lemon tart. I want more, LOL.  The papers are all Carta Bella.  The base is Kraft.  Everything you can see is So Noted 6x6.  I used dies by Spellbinders and Lifestyle crafts.  The flower stamp was stamped twice -- once on the circle, then again on Cryogen paper, colored with Copic markers, painted with peach Creative Inspirations paint to give it some shimmer, and fussy cut.  It is a Unity Stamp, "Best Things Just Happen".  The MOM banner was made with a Making Memories Dilly Dally clear stamp set.  And, I probably don't have to tell you, I made it for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day.  Hopefully, she won't read my blog before then!

I already linked up once for Friends With Flair, but since this is a Unity stamp, I'll link again.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

  2. Such a lovely card, Julie!! I think your MIL is going to love the card! The twine around the image is such a nice touch. I have a question, does the twine end stay twisted and not fray easily?
