365 Cards Day 139 ~ Twisted

And the challenge for today is called "Twisted" because we're looking for a braided or twisted material, such as floss, ribbon, twine or something similar.

Tried braiding 3 colors of 1/8 ribbons in red/white/blue and a macrame bracelet but neither turned out neat, so I decided to try twisting twine over a rectangular card which was cut with a scalloped scissors and inked golden brown.  Looks more like lacing but I think it should do.  Cut a piece of patterned paper, pasted it on the left column of an off white card and mounted the laced up card.  Pieced this flower together using Spellbinders' Carnation Creations on paper and inked them on the edges.


This card roughly follows Card Positioning System sketch CPS274.
