Melonheadz Friends: Twine/Ribbon/Lace Challenge

Welcome to the newest challenge at Melonheadz Friends! This week we are using twine, ribbon, or lace. This adorable fisherman with his pole and creel (basket) are from the "Gone Fishin" digi set by Melonheadz. My card is probably not what you would expect for this one -- I chose to use twine. Can you see it?!

I added twine to the fishing pole just for fun. :)

Here's a closer view.

My husband told me this card could get him in trouble if anyone thinks he is actually bringing home's catch and release at his fishing hole. LOL I cut these cute little fish from a stamp and added wink of stella and glossy accents before putting them into the fishing creel. ;)

Thanks for coming by. I hope you'll join us for this week's challenge!

My Favorite Things, BB Sunflower Sweetheart (sentiment and grass)

My Favorite Things, Color Challenge #45

Super fun color combo with My Favorite Things this week (see link at the end of this post). I used the new Snuggle Bunnies release bunny and teddy. Adorbs!

After coloring, I heat embossed the images with clear embossing powder. I love the look it gives plus it makes the die cuts even more sturdy.

The sentiment is also from the Snuggle Bunnies set.
