Color Challenge 21 AND 365 Cards Day 314-Braiding

Hello all!

I am soooo excited about this little card today. I love the flower (toot toot- that was me tooting my own horn, lol).
I made it for the 365 Cards challenge today which required the use of braiding. It is twine (my favorite!) braided and wrapped in circles on a piece of cardstock that I ran through my Xyron sticker maker. What do you think!?!?

I made the card in the beautiful selection of colors that Dawn gave us to play with this time around. They are so soft and pretty. (I did add a bit of green for the leaves though.)
The twine is from a big spool that I picked up at ValuVillage (a place that sells donated stuff and gives some of the money to charity), the card stock is all Recollections stuff from Michaels, the ribbon is Offray and the sentiment is TPC Studio-Greetings. I also used my Martha Stewart punch and Labels One Spellbinders.
I really hope you like my little braided flower!

Take care and have a great day,
Chrissy
