Hello all!! I was so excited to join the Way to use it challenge which was to use string and not ribbon on your creation!! It took me a while to finish this card since I find it difficult to work on the couch without a hard surface to work on and unfortunately I had a lot of pain as well in my right shoulder and arm. It certainly helped me pass the time though and now I have one more thank you card!!
Thanks for a great challenge Michelle!!
Thanks for looking!!

Chris, anyone looking at your lovely card would never believe that you are enduring "pain and suffering". Love how you did the back panel with stenciling AND embossing....neat effect. Your "rose" roses are exquisitely colored.

Gosh, Chris - I can't imagine trying to work from a couch. But so long as you don't overdo things I'm sure it helps pass the time (it always seems so wrong to me that just when one has a lot of time, sick in bed or recovering from an injury, it's the hardest to use it effectively).
The twine over the lovely lace border looks fantastic. Gorgeous roses, too :D.

Such a beauty, Chris! Your roses look like velvet....don't know how you did that, but keep up the good work! Love the pretty bg and that border is lovely too! Sorry that you aren't feeling well....get better quickly, K~ Hugs
