CAS-ual Fridays challenge #2

Clean And Simple is my absolute favorite style when it comes to cards, and also in designs in general, so I when heard about the new CAS-ual Fridays' challenge, I heard it call out my name! Loud and clear!
The challenge was to use both buttons and twine, and after some thought I ended up sewing with the twine, in a circle around the main image. I used a Spellbinders circle die as my template, and poked the holes before threading the twine. And let me tell you, threading jute twine is NOT easy!
 The flower is from the Hero Arts set CL511, Sweet Threads Thank You, and the background paper is from Basic Gray's Sweet Threads line. So cool how they coordinate, don't you think??
Have a great Sunday!
Anette :o)

Beautiful card! I love the flower which echoes the paper - looks like you've used Glossy Accents, to give it some pop! Great idea ;)

Sewing with twine? GENIUS! And the beautiful white highlights you placed on the stamped flower really help it to stand out. Such a clever design. So glad you joined us for CAS-ual Fridays.
