PPA74 - Sketch Challenge

Hello, and welcome! I am this weeks Guest Artist over at Pals Paper Arts and today I am a joining the PPA Design Team in the PPA74 Sketch Challenge. Here's a look at the sketch...
And here is what I came up with... As per my usual style, I had to switch things up a bit and turn the sketch on it side. Started the card by attaching a strip of Happy Spots pattern paper to the kraft card base and rounded the bottom corners. Then wrapped baker's twine around the card, carefully spacing each strand out evenly.
For the focal point I stamped a wreath (from Wreath for All Seasons), onto a die cut Mat Stack #4, in Dark Chocolate and Wild Honey Distress Ink. Then stamped a sentiment (from Birthday Bash Sentiment) in Plum Pudding and attached it to the card base with dimensional adhesive. Finished the card of with a few Harvest Gold buttons, more baker's twine and an adorable little bird from Little Bitty Bird.

I hope you too will join in on the challenge fun! Look here for the challenge details and the Pals Paper Arts Design Teams gorgeous challenge creations.

Thanks for stopping by today, have a wonderful day!
