Just Us Girls #291 - Word Week

It's Word Week over at Just Us Girls, and my friend and fellow JUGs designer Cheryl chose "twine" as the word.
 
 I pulled out my template die for this project.  As I was putting it together, I realized how much I miss making things from templates!  When I was on the My Time Made Easy design team, I made some fabulous things from their templates.  Anyway, I purchased this Goodie Bag die a while ago and it's just so cute put together!  I found this Jillibean paper in my stash and die cut the bag die from it.  I tied the bag together with some baker's twine from The Twinery.
 
I cut a strip from the leftover piece and added  it to my card front.  I used a Spellbinder's die to cut the tag.  While it was still in the die, I sponged some Wild Honey ink on the tag.  The sentiment was die cut from the same paper as well as three other times from kraft paper for some dimension and added it to the tag.  I tied some twine to the tag and added some sequins to the card to finish it off.
 
I used this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches for my layout on the card.
 
You can see more inspiration from our design team and our new Guest Designer for May on these blogs.

Beautiful! I love how the tag looks layered and the coordinating die cut sentiment. The perfect sprinkling of sequins, too.
