JUGS #280 Trend Week!

Hello and Happy Saturday!  Ina, our lovely host at Just Us Girls for this week has an awesome trend challenge-BURLAP!  She's a genius! What a great challenge with so many natural fibers out there now!   I used a piece from a package I got at Michael's. In fact, my buddy, Lisa and I split the package of colored burlap.  You'll want to check Lisa's and all the other DT inspiration cards on our BLOG!

 I used this poppy stamp from Stamping Bella. Same 'ole story-I've had it for quite some time, but it has never seen ink until today!  I stamped it in black Stazon and watercolored it with reinkers from Stampin' Up!  My main colors are Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio and Soft Sky.  I cut it out with a My Favorite things pierced circle die. The spellbinders diecut behind is actually kraft cardstock, but it's sponged with vintage photo distress ink. My card base is cream stamped in kraft ink with a retired background from SU.
That's about it! Here's another view taken in actual daylight because I had a snow day from school today due to the very cold weather and wind chill.
So pull out some burlap and go create-especially if you're in the northeast where it's cold and snowy and can't go out anyway!
You have until Thursday, Feb. 29 at 9 ET to enter your card or project!
Thanks for visiting!
