Challenge 68. Use twine or floss!!

Well, hello to all you inky people out there. It's Saturday once again and time for Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge 68!!

This week, our very talented hostess is Jeanne and she would like us to use twine or floss or something similar on our cards. Since Jeanne is using Stella Strawberry on her lovely card, that is the stamp that some lucky lady will win.

For my card, I used Curtis. If you can believe it, I had not yet inked him up and he is so cute. Most of the rest of the design team have made lovely cards with him, but I just had not got to him yet. He is so perfect for a masculine card, I think and I never have enough 'guy' cards, so this is one more for my very small collection. I coloured Curtis with my Copics and cut him out using my Deckle Rectangle Nesties. I then mounted the image layer onto some Basic Black cardstock, which I had dry embossed using a folder with bubbly looking circles on it. I can't remember the name of it and I threw away the package long ago!! Unfortunately you can't see it in the picture anyway!! I used some Olivia papers from Basic Grey. I used a panel of the paper across the front, matted it onto some black, then tied some of the required twine across it. I matted it all onto some more black and set it on a card base of Kiwi Kiss. I used some dew drop sort of thingies down the right side and added the sentiment 'Best Fishes'

So now it's your turn to make a card or creation using twine or something similar on your card and see if you can win Stella Strawberry! Don't forget to link your card up to Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog.

I do hope you have a wonderful weekend.
