I'm a Guest at Trendy Twine!!!

I'm really honored to be a guest this month at Trendy Twine!  And a huge THANK YOU
to Lesley over there for letting me "play"!!

My first post is up today:

The "twine of the month" is Grape's gorgeous isn't it?!!  Love this
color!  I thought the twine was the perfect touch on this Mother's Day card.

It's a nice simple card....I used Basic Grey Wisteria in 6x6 (the purple is a
great match with the twine!) and for details, I cut apart some Want2Scrap
bling, and also used the purple Studio G gems....a girl can never have enough
bling, right?  The dress form is a Maya Rd. chipboard piece covered with
the BG paper, sanded, and inked, the kraft cardstock makes the base pieces,
(inked with Vintage Photo), the punched edge from a Martha punch, buttons
from my stash, and the Happy Mother's Day sentiment from Shabby Chic Stamp Co.

The trick to making the twine "dress" was just a piece of scor tape, that I
stuck the twine down as I looped it, then another piece of scor tape, with
a small piece of seam binding for the waist band.

Oooo, and the inks are Vintage Photo and Seedless Preserves distress ink!

Hope you get a little Mother's Day cardmaking inspiration's this
weekend!!  So take the time to make someone special in your life a card
today!  And remember to check in to the Trendy Twine store....lot's of
absolutely GORGEOUS twine over there!!
