{twine challenge at twisted sketches!}

Twine!!! One of my favorite trims!
Twisted Sketches card challenge this week is to use this sketch with some twine. Any way you want!! :)


I first tried to cover a chip piece with twine and it didn't work out so well. Then, I thought...make a pom-pom! I had this Maya Road chip party hat in my stash. I embossed the hat with rich red embossing powder by Ranger. Then I added a bit of Martha Stewart twine near the bottom and placed the pom-pom on top. A LaMode button w/a Prima pearl finish the little party hat. Cute, right?

{celebrate}
I used a Bazzill dotted swiss base and an ek edge punch for the white scalloped edge. The BG chip square is covered w/For the Luv of Art pp. The stamped sentiment (popped up), is by Unity - and again, I embossed w/red Ranger.

Thanks to the Twisted girls for this fun sketch and thank you for coming by my blog!!

hugs, patti

That pom pom is so awesome. It reminds me of the ones I used to put on my roller skates in the 80's!
