Some Wire and some Twine

There is a challenge at the Flower Soft blog and that is to use wire.
Flower Soft sells white covered wires to use with Flower Soft and there are so many different things to do with them. The team was challenged to see what they could do.  I simply twisted a piece of the wire into a flower shape and then applied a generous layer of the white glue to that.  Once it was all covered on the top side, I sprinkled on the Flower Soft and left it to dry. 


I thought it turned out pretty fun for an embellishment for my card.
Next up, The Twinery is the sponsor at Card Positioning Systems blog this week.  I LOVED the package I received with some pretty  neat colors and I just knew I needed to use an assortment of them for my card.

I simply cut my circle (it is really a half circle since it wasn't going to all show), I covered that with a double stick tape and then started laying down my pieces.  I started in the middle because I knew my biggest challenge was going to be to keep my lines straight!!! I cut them as I went along. The edges have a slight frayed look to them and I like that too. The butterfly is a stamp from My Cute Stamps and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches. 
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
