I am entering this cards in three Challenge blogs.  First is from Inspired By #117

What inspired me in this picture are the different textures of material and the wicker basket.  Which is why I made the burlap flower.

The Second Challenge Blog comes from Retro sketches #117.

The Third Challenge blog is Crafty Cardmakers and more Challenge #116 to use One of more flourishes on my card.

  2. Now that's what you call a flourish! Just gorgeous. Love the rustic feel from the colour palette combined with the burlap flower and twine.
