Whatever the Weather

Woohoo! It's the weekend! Thanks for taking time from your busy Saturday schedule to visit the Timeless Twine blog.  It's Julie here today. We're mixing it up this month, with the designers bringing you different themes.  I was lucky enough to get a "card" theme for today. However, to challenge myself, I tried a technique I've never used before.  
First, the card:

Soft, subtle spring time colors.  Ah, just what I've been craving.  And, an umbrella! We still need snow shovels where I live -- we got 10 inches of snow yesterday!  Yeesh! But, back to the card.  I tried a new technique (for me), using the negative space from the diecut, and filling the space with 2 colors of Timeless Twine -- Aqua Blue and Cherry Red.
Here's a close up of the sentiment...


These new  Bella Creationz Spring colored sequins were the perfect finishing touch for this card. They come in Aqua, Pink, and Lime Green.










Papers used were a Jillibean Soup 6x6 pad, Southern Chicken Dumpling Soup.  The petite umbrella die is by Memory Box. The sentiment is by Unity Stamp Company.
Make sure you visit each day this month for tons of fun and inspiration from the Timeless Twine design team.
