Paper Dolls Challenge with Twine

Hey everyone!  How are you all doing?  It is another super HOT week here!! It was up to 110 degrees this weekend (YUCK) and will continue to be hot ALL WEEK!  It's a stay-inside-if-you-can kind of week!

It's my turn to host the Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge!  You all know how much I love to use twine in my projects!  So, I thought a fitting challenge would be to create a card or a project that incorporates twine in some way.  If you don't have twine, you could use floss or something else that is similar...but no ribbon (unless that is ALL you have to choose from!).  Here's my card:


I chose four colors of twine from The Twinery (LOVE their twine SO MUCH!!) and that determined the color combination for the card.  I love how festive and summery this turned out.  I used my corner chomper to round the top right-hand corner of the card also.


I really like seeing all those twine strands in a row together.  I think it ties the card together nicely. 


If you would like to join us for this fun challenge, you can link up your creation here.  We'd love to see what you create!  Thanks for visiting!!
