Twine Flowers


It's almost Friday!!! And the day's are ticking down for the start of the Fall semester :( Today i have a card that made for The Twinery's Inspired by Pinterest Challenge.

I used this picture for my inspiration.

To start i picked out the pink pillow, blue side table, and dark pink flowers and matched them to The Twinery twine.

I decided to make flowers, so punched 3 small circles and adhered matching rhinestones to the center of each circle. Then with some glossy accents for glue, i adhered the twine around the rhinestone layer by layer.

Next to pull in the color and pattern of couch, i found some yellow cardstock and stamped it with a background stamp with orange ink. I trimmed the panel a little shorter then my cardbase, but when i placed it on the cardbase it was too much yellow/orange, so i cut the panel in thirds and trimmed off a little extra. 

But it still wasn;t enough white, the photo has a lot of white from the floor to the wall. So i punched a white border and placed this across the card. Then i stamped the sentiment Happy Birthday and adhered my flowers along with some die cut leaves.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
