I went really clean and simple for today's card. I didn't even add a sentiment!
The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4." I cut a white mat at 5 3/8"x4 1/8." I wanted to make this even more simple, i.e. one layer, but I wanted to wrap the twine around it, which warranted another layer. I wrapped the twine around the white mat three times. I then took three pieces of twine and tied them in a bow around the center of the wrapped twine, trimming off the ends to a length I liked.
The image is a stamp by Stampendous. I colored it in with colored pencils from Prismacolor. I am not that fantastic at coloring, still learning and all, but I think it turned out pretty nice.
I made this for the challenge at The Friday Mashup, which is to make a one-layer card with a nautical theme. I'm close to the one layer part, but definitely have the nautical theme.
