Hello Friend

Daring Cardmakers
My third card this month as Guest Designer

Using some threads, fibres, yarn, twine, string on your card

I started with a sponged stencil image and a matching brown shades floral stamped image, that I'd coloured with pencils --- both in my stash.  I cut the medallion stencilled piece in half and fussy cut the flowers. Next I die cut some foliage in white card and my 'hello' sentiment in brown and also two layers of dark brown... then glued these together offset so there was a shadow.  Stamped and white embossed 'friend' on dark brown card too.  I arranged the elements and wrapped light brown raffia twine around it and left the tails long so they could be part of the arrangement.... an attached all these to a white card.
Here's a close up....

I am also playing along with Double 'D' challenge - Saying Hello!!
