Wish You Were Here.....{Trendy Twine & TAWS}

Good Morning Bloggers!!!
It is my design team day for Trendy Twine and I am so excited to share my card...
All month the DT has been showcasing the gorgeous Trendy Twine colors of the month
and mixing our projects with Kraft (one of my favorite go to colors!)
And for even more fun within the Trendy Twine DT, a few of us have been sharing projects using The Alley Way Stamps too.... So today I get to share them both!

It just happens to be Day 3 of sneaks for the 
June stamps being released from 
and I have incorporated my sneak into my Trendy Twine DT project using the soon to be released 
Tropical Hideaway
stamp set......
Here is my card.....this so makes me want to hit the beach :)
My card starts with a Kraft card stock base and I added a mat of designer paper from Echo Park~Paradise Beach paper pack. I stamped the sentiment and then ran the mat through my sewing machine and attached it all to my card base. Then using the surf board, I stamped it 2 times on matching designer paper from the same stack and then 4 times on the kraft cardstock. I cut the surf boards and then the center circles out, then grabbed some 
Tickled with Teal Trendy Twine and attached it to the center of both surf boards. I popped up the kraft center and glued them both on my card.
I could have stopped there but thought my card needed something more so I decided to add some more dimension and make my own cords. I used more Tickled with Teal Trendy Twine and some jump rings. 
They look pretty cool don't you think????
Makes you want to hit the beach...right :)

Well that is all I have for you today..... Make sure to stop over at the Trendy Twine blog for more awesome projects being posted daily and check out the new store HERE
Both Tickled with Teal and Twisted Teal are on sale but only for a few more days!
