Terrific Twine at V's Sweet Ideas

Hello my crafty friends!  I'm back today to share with you about the new challenge for the Month of August at V's Sweet Ideas that is all about using TWINE.  If you have any projects during the Month of August that use any type of twine, I hope that you will share them in our challenge.   I made my card using some new goodies from V's Sweet Shoppe including some red Baker's Twine from The Twinery, some little colored pebbles (I used the green) from Freckled Fawn, and I also used a doily, a die-cut (you) from Papertrey Ink and some patterned papers and journaling card from Crate Paper on which I computer printed the words "are so berry sweet".  The strawberry was hand cut from wool felt that I purchased at Prairie Point Junction/Wool Felt Central.  Once I hand-cut the strawberry and topper, I tied some french knots in the felt to give the appearance of texture.  I thought it turned out cute, and I was excited to tie in the Baker's Twine for the challenge theme at V's Sweet Ideas.  I really hope that you will choose to play along with us.  V's Sweet Ideas is full of darling products at great prices, and shipping prices are always very reasonable as well.
I appreciate you stopping by to take a peek at my little strawberry twine card.  I thought it was Summery and sweet, and I hope it inspires you to play along and create something with twine.  You can pick up many lovely colors of this high-quality twine at V's Sweet Ideas and you can also pick it up directly at The Twinery.  They happen to be having a sale right now for 25% off using coupon code TWINERY25.

I also invite you to share this week in our challenge at Word Art Wednesday where, every week, Anything Goes.  I'd LOVE to have you share in our challenge there as well.  Your art is always welcomed in our challenges, and I just love seeing your sweet creations.

I'm sharing my card here:
