Love You Forever.....{Trendy Twine}

Good Morning Trendy Twiners!!!!
It is that time again.....our Trendy Twine Group post and boy are all the projects AWESOME!!! 

This month the Trendy Twine DT is spotlighting all the solid colors of twine. LOVE the variety that is offered and there are more colors in the works!
Hey did you know that the Totally White can be colored using your copic markers? There will never be a project again that doesn't match! Just thought I would let you all know :)
Photo: Happy May!!!  It is a new month and the Trendy Gals are spotlighting our awesome solid twists.  (Keep in mind if you want your twine to match your project, color the Totally White Trendy Twine with your Copic markers.  It works beautifully.)  Click on the link for the current specials :)

For my card today, I used the Totally White Trendy Twine (a must have!) and I followed the new challenge~

Say It With a Sentiment:
(1) Sentiment as the focal point
(2)  Trendy Twine

**If you do not have Trendy Twine, use hemp, jute, 
embroidery thread, or yarn only; NO ribbon
(no other brands of bakers twine)**

Deadline is 11:59 p.m. central time, Friday May 23rd

Here is my card....... Hope you like it!
I wanted to try some new things with my card that I have seen others in bloggy land do~ embossing on vellum and doing the lasso type thing with twine. I am very happy with the way this card turned out too! What are your thoughts?

I started with some black card stock as my base and added a layer of white and then a very light pink card stock. I heat embossed the "forever" sentiment using  Paper Smooches~We Connect stamp set and then with my sewing machine stitched it to my card mats.
The additional sentiments are also from the same Paper Smooches stamp set and those adorable hearts are from the My Guy set.
I did color the hearts using my copic markers, randomly placed some silver sequins onto my card and wrapped the Totally White Trendy Twine through the vellum, leaving it loose and in no particular pattern.
