DYSU#89 - Kraft + Twine

Hey ladies!  This week's DYSU Challenge is to use Kraft and Twine on your project!
and here are some wonderful prizes from our sponsors this week...

* $15 Store Credit

* Winner's Choice of 4 Images

* Winner's Choice of 3 Images

I had fun working with the Swirly Owl Branch image from Doodles by Hope Jacare on my card today. I printed the sweet owl and it's branch onto some cream cardstock, coloured with my Copic markers.  I fussy cut around the image and then popped it up on some foam dots to adhere to the front of my card.  My background consists of embossed kraft cardstock and some pretty patterned paper by Prima all finished off with pink lace, mini ric rac trim and ivory button twine (from The Ribbon Reel) complete with a sweet pink pearl.


Do please stop by the DYSU blog and join us for this fantastic challenge and your chance to win some fabby prizes.  The DYSU DT have also created some absolutely brilliant cards to get your inspiration flowing, so pay them a visit and leave some love!! ;)

Have a great Thursday!
