Pawsitively Perfect!!

Thanks for stopping by! We're sharing a little Puppy Love at The Twinery over the next few days and I've got a sweet little card to share! I love incorporating twine into my projects as a way to add color and texture. This one has lots of different colors - a treat for your eyes!
I started by stamping a tag with a punny sentiment and some cute little paw prints. Next I got out my ruler and drew a pencil dot ever 1/4" to help me punch holes in a nice straight row down the side of the tag.

Now the fun part... attaching lengths of colorful twine along the edge of the card. There's so many colors to choose from.. why pick only one?

I didn't want to distract from the bright twine colors, so I threaded the tag with charcoal twine and colored my puppies in neutral shades (Copic W's).
Aren't these little guys the sweetest?
