DDSB Challenge 11

Yay... Thursday. How are you all doing? We have new challenge for you from Digi Doodle Shop's Best. This week theme is "Tie It up". Use string,twine,floss,rafia or anything that you can tie on your project other than ribbon.

This challenge made me dug in my old stash. Remember when, rafia was the trend in scrapbooking? Yes people, the rafia I used on my card is from my 2004 stash. Can you believe it? Sigh... make me feel old. That was 6 years ago.



For this card, I decided not to tie the rafia at all. Instead, I cut several 1" long piece of the white rafia. Unravel it a bit and then glued it to the back of the bird frame. I thought the ruffle it create looks pretty. I just love this blue jay. Not that often I created a card with kraft cardstock, so this look is quite different for me. Stamped the Stampabilities graph stamp with Versamark on the cardstock to create a soft patterned background.

Tomorrow's the big day. Whether I make it to the Top 15 or not, I just want to thank you all who supported me and encourage me along the way. Either way it's been a really fun experience. Nerve wrecking, yes, but also so much fun!

Well peeps, that's it for today. Please stop by Digi Doodle Shop's Best challenge blog, check out all the detail for the challenge and hope you will join us! Hugs, Vera.
