Rosie Posie

Dear Ones~
We are going to pick up the Princes tomorrow and will have them until Monday. Guess this will be the last day in my craft room for awhile.  Today I made a card for a couple of challenges. Papertrey Ink is celebrating the past, present, and future. Today they are focusing on the year 2012. And Double D Challenge is asking us to use ric rac or zig zag on our cards. Here is the wonderful panel of tiles they offered to us for inspiration:

And this is the card I CASED over at Papertrey Ink:
This card was created by Dawn McVey, you can see it on her blog HERE.

So here is my card:

I used a Darice embossing folder called Basket Weave. I thought the texture resembled a zig zag pattern. I fussy cut just one strip of the zig zag from some patterned paper to look like ric rac. I love this PTI stamp set called Rosie Posie, and I thought it would be fun to make the leaves brown instead of green.

Here are the ingredients:

PTI Rustic Cream Card Stock
