Button and Burlap or Bows

 
Hi everyone, glad to have you back with me today.  I'm here as the host of Our Creative Corner this week and my challenge is easy peasy this time around.  I want you to use some of my very favorite embellishments.  Just make something with Buttons and either Burlap and/or Bows.

Here's my sample that I made using the white burlap that I sell in The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  It's pretty stiff as is, but I did brush a thin coat of Multi Medium Matte across the back and let dry and before trying to die cut it.  It held together beautifully.  The lace is from my shop also, originally white but I stained it with coffee.  The button card is a stamp from PaperTreyIn.  The burlap twine and the burlap string are also both from my boutique.  The canvas flower is hand rolled, cut using the Tattered Pinecone die. The stick pin was assembled by me and similar stick pins are also available in my shop.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I appreciate your support, encouragement and comments!  I hope you will stop by Our Creative Corner to get some inspiration from the other designers.

Hello Linda
This is a most beautiful soft and feminine card, all the distressed layers create a vintage feel and is all so lusciously Shabby with your stitching and lace, but it is your twine bow that is the star for me as it creates such wonderful movement.
A lovely, lovely card.
Smiles:)

Linda, this is beautiful! You have such a way of adding the perfect elements with the perfect details every time. This was a fun challenge and I wanted to thank you for getting me out of my comfort zone, once again, to try something new. Although I need to buy some more burlap soon, as I used the only piece I had for my card. Haha! I saw a few other new treats at your boutique that I want to try out, too. Thanks for a fun challenge and your amazing inspiration every week. Big hugs! :)
