The Twinery and Rubbernecker Blog Hop



Hello---Welcome to The Twinery and Rubbernecker Blog Hop! You should have come from Amazing Bev's blog!  If not, you might want to start the hop at the beginning so you don't miss a thing!


For my card today, I used the Rubbernecker set "Butterflies are Free."  I love the beautiful scripted sentiments in this set and all the different butterfly choices.  I chose to stamp one on vellum and place it right above the sentiment.  To embellish the card, I used some Cantaloupe baker's twine to tie sections of my seam binding ribbon. 
I used some Pink Sorbet baker's twine to thread through a button to add some color.  I also wrapped some baker's twine in Cantaloupe, Pink Sorbet and Shore to add to the center of the flowers to give them some fun dimension:

The next stop on the hop is the talented Charlene's blog!  Enjoy!
