Monday Challenge # 11 - Tie it On!

Hello blogger friends, here is the card I made for the Monday Challenge #11 - Tie it On taking place at My Craft Spot. The requirements were to tie ribbon or twine somewhere on your card. I wanted to make a sweet (pun intended) simple little card and since I really love the Kate's ABCs cartridge I decided to use it for my card. I wanted soft clean colors with no clutter. I'm really happy with the way it turned out.

Cartridge: Kate's ABCs
Image: Flower4 on page 29 cut at 3", Phrase cut at 1 1/4"
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: D'vine Swirls
Tim Holtz Distressing Ink: Tattered Rose
Misc: Twine and button

Trying to keep it simple I tied twine around one edge and used a button to top it off. Yes I did use my gel pen to stitch around my card, me and my stitching, I love it. But in my defense I know that I'm not the only one that loves to stitch around their cards so I'm okay with it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

God Bless you all,
