Hello with Spruce and Sprigs

Hello, how are you today?

I'm doing pretty well, I have a card to share with you! 

I got inspired by the Make It Monday Challenge at Papertrey Ink to use ribbon and twine on a card. Sounds simple, right? That's what I thought! NOT. 
Here's the beautiful card by Stephanie Gold. 

It took way too long to make my card. I was bent on weaving twine through the holes of the die cut panel. Unfortunately I had to stamp the random background and die cut the panel three times until I was happy with it. That's a LOT of tiny little holes to poke out. 

After completing the panel with images from the Spruce and Sprigs set, I did weave Linen Thread onto the top left corner of the card and topped it with a bow. Underneath the sentiment banner I added a green ribbon. I tucked the die cut berries in as a focal point, covering them with clear Nuvo Gloss Drops. 

I ended up with a warm country feel to my card that I really like. Hope you do too. 

Thanks for visiting!
