Hello and all the best! Here is a card that came about because of a challenge a while ago about texture.The handmade paper, jute and linen used was my "texture."

The hand made paper is something I picked up in a scrap booking store about 5 years ago and  I've been hoarding it ever since. I layered it with brown card stock to bring out the dark twine in the center. Jute is used to tie on the charm and sentiment tag.

I cut the small heart out of linen and colored it with a teal copic marker. Then I white washed it using the picket fence distress marker. The sentiment tag is also cut out of linen and distressed using vintage photo distress ink. That cool safety pin is another thing that I've been saving for a long time too!

Thanks for stopping by!
