Tuesday Throwdown Challenge Sponsored by The Twinery

I  love using somne baker's twine on projects!  It's light, two-tones and adds such a fun, playful look to projects.  When I found out that The Twinery was sponsoring us over at Tuesday Throwdown, I was over the moon!  They have such a fabulous color selection and their twine is so soft and easy to work with.  Our challenge this week was to make your own background, which isn't one of my strong points, but I tried none the less!

I used this sweet stamp, Adorable Cinderella, from The Paper Shelter and she helped a bit with making a background!

I love her!  Isn't this twine just gorgeous?  I used Marigold and Tangerine around my layers to give them some color and add some texture to my card.  My little beauty is sitting on her bench on the side of the road, waiting for her ride home since she seems to have misplaced a slipper!  She's colored with copics and had some Stickles added to her dress.  The bling around her tiara and pumpkin are from my Jelly Roll glitter pen and the papers are from DCWV Cafe Mediterranean paper pack.

There's just something about this adorable face I couldn't resist!

Here's a couple of side views of her that I think shows off the twine.  I plan on entering her in the following challenges:

Bunny Zoe Crafts - favorite color combination (blue and orange!)
2 Sisters Challenge - blue and/or green

Come on over to our Tuesday Throwdown Challenge blog and show us how you can make fabulous backgrounds!  And take a look at the fabulous projects my designing buddies have in store for you.  They are truly amazing!
