Something Wonderful with twine

The current challenge at Catered Crop is "Twine Love" and I do love twine!  It's so versatile - for my card today, I let it take center stage to highlight this "wonderful" sentiment!  But it works just as easily to tie a button - or to add a simple strip across a card for that little accent that makes it perfect.

Something Wonderful
Catered Crop

If you have not played along, Catered Crop is a great challenge.  It runs for two weeks.  On the first week, Linda has a Pinterest inspiration board for the theme, so you can get lots of ideas just by seeing what she has pinned.  (This week's twine board includes bacon out of twine!!?)  But if the inspiration board isn't quite enough to get you started, on the second week, the design team posts their take on the challenge.  So you get LOTS of inspiration out of a single challenge!
Pinterest: Twine Love
And something wonderful has happened for me - I get to start designing for them!! You'll be seeing lots more from me - and I hope I inspire you to check it out and play along!

The sentiment is from a new set by The Alley Way Stamps - I love what it says.  This set is full of unique sayings that are different from anything that I already own.

And, yes, this is two days in a row that I jumped on the sequin trend!!

  1. Holy Smokes. I love this. Welcome to Catered Crop, Kim! I'm so tickled to have you. Oooo, and I'm going to check out all those iPad apps. So smart.

  2. Love the way you used the twine...fab!

  3. Kim your card is beautiful. So crisp and clean--LOVE it. How do you tie you twine bows, they are perfectly balance. Do you double loop or wrap around?

    Congrats on designing for Catered Crop--looking forward to seeing what you do!

  4. Congrats on the Catered Crop role; you are a perfect fit, and I'm so looking forward to yet more of your inspiring, dazzling creations. Your card here is stunning! I wish twine and I could forge a positive relationship. As soon as bows or knots are involved, I just hang my head - can't make a decent bow, no matter how hard I try (and the Bow Easy hasn't helped). So, I'll admire 'from afar' (perhaps more practice?). I'll echo Tracey's comments - how do you tie those bows?
    Enjoy your Thursday!

  5. Yippee skippee---I love Catered Crop and Linda is a hoot! Great match--I can't wait to see what terrific stuff to create!!
