Cuttlebug Spot - Twine

We have another embellishment challenge for you this week at the Cuttlebug Spot...this time we'd like to see you using:

'Twine or String'

I've used string that I've 'recycled' from my flatmate's weekly Able & Cole veg box...it's a lovely mix of pale blue and white, and they tie masses of it around each box, so I've managed to gather quite a stash of it! :0)

I ordered some of the new Lili of the Valley stamps last week, and they arrived on Saturday, so I coloudn't resist inking one up and using him on this card. He's called 'Spring Swing', and I coloured him with watercolour pencils, then cut him out using one of my deckled edge Nesties. The papers are from the 'Marjolaine' pad, and I embossed the plainer one using my Cuttlebug 'Birds & Swirls' folder. The flowers are by Prima, and the brads are also BasicGrey, but from the Wisteria collection, although they match these papers quite well too. I tied my string across the centre, and then tucked a Tim Holtz 'Adage Ticket' behind it. I distressed all of teh edges, and then added some tiny adhesive pearls in the corners.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
