KWerner's CI #30 (late)

I finished this card last Thursday night, but I was too late to add it to Kristina's blog by the deadline. Here was the inspiration:

and my card (which did double duty as an example for my Stamper's Club technique--embossing):


card recipe (all SU!): cardstock (Kraft, Whisper white, Old Olive); inks (Certainly Celery, Old Olive); Stamps (Eastern Blooms); hemp twine; Floral Frenzy Embossing template and stylus; Scallop Square punch.

Love the new Banner Liz...Walmart had lots of cheap 4 photo frames...But we were thinking these frames were not so big to where you could put them side by side.

Very pretty card. I wouldn't have thought that those colors would look so nice together but they are beautiful.

I LOVE the simplicity of this card, but don't think I could capture the same effect if I spent an hour trying. Even the way you tied your twine looks so natural, and great! This is a great card.
