Biweekly Challenge 2 - Autumn Flowers Project 1

Hi!  I'm Kim and I'm so happy to be back with The Cuttin' and Stampin' Design Team!  We've got many of the same talented ladies working with us, and I know you'll love all the fun projects we'll come up with for these upcoming bi-weekly challenges.

This week's challenge is Autumn Flowers. 
We were inspired by the Fancy Pants Burlap & Bouquets collection. 


These products and so much more are available at

I fell in love with the impactful burlap bows, so it's the focal point of my project.  However, the theme for the challenge is Autumn Flowers.  Got that covered with both patterns of the Fancy Pants papers I chose from the 6x6 pad.  The flowers are small, but I think they add just the right touch!

If you take a close look at the burlap bows in the package (just scroll up a bit), you'll notice that my burlap bow looks slightly different.  I took a pair of scissors and gave it a little haircut.  I trimmed off a lot of the extra threads that were hanging over the edge.   I also puffed the bow up a little bit so it didn't look so flat.  It held the new shape very nicely!  The "Thank You" tag comes from this collection, also.   I chose to edge it with Clearsnap chalk ink in Chestnut Roan to give it a little distressing, and I added some burlap twine to finish it off.

I hope you'll join us in this challenge!   Please share with us your card with Autumn Flowers.

Happy Thanksgiving & Happy Stamping!
