Thankful-Grateful-BLESSED

** 3/24/17 Party Pick at PDE Linky Party! **

Hello, crafty friends! Can you believe we’re in the middle of March?! I hope you’re enjoying some nice Spring-like weather wherever you are! The March challenge went live on the 5th over at Let’s Craft and Create and I’m stoked to share my mid-month DT inspiration project for Challenge #123 – enTWINEd! We want to see some twine on your project! C’mon, you can do it! Twine is awesome!

I created a very flowery friendship/thank you card using three coordinating sheets from a new Crafter’s Companion paper pack that I’m in love with. The stitched tag die is relatively new to my stash of stitched dies which I’m also in love with, lol!

I embossed the sentiment on the tag with white embossing powder which coordinates beautifully with the white design on the paper and the lace doily I added beneath the flowered panel. In addition to the twine, I used quite a few red rhinestones and white flat-back pearls.

I decorated the inside with a leftover strip of the floral paper and red cardstock used on the front. The front and inside sentiments are from a relatively new SU stamp set which I’ll be using again very soon. :)
