because...

Hello friends!  Hope you are having a good weekend.  We have been having a pretty wet and windy one so far.   Have a card to share that I made using the current MFT sketch (MFTWSC158).  I also used the colors from the first Card Concept challenge and made my card in the "clean and layered" style.


I used the MFT sets Splendid Sunflower and Peaceful Wildflowers.  The sunflower was stamped and then trimmed out (still don't own the matching die!) and then three little rhinestones were added.  After creating all the initial layers I used some Early Espresso baker's twine to create the two final elements in the layout.  Once the twine was attached I added the trimmed out sunflower. 
 



Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock: PTI cream, kraft and pink; PP:  PTI kraft; Stamps:  MFT; Ink:  Stampin Up!; Baker's twine:  Stampin Up!; Rhinestones:  KI Memories

Love how you interpreted that sketch using the twine! It just started raining here too, thank goodness because the ground is really dry here.
