Wee Memories Challenge # 23

So today I am playing along with Wee Memories again!  Here is their challenge:

"This week your challenge is to incorporate any 2 of the 3 designs, Scallops, Orange or String."




I have a  CAS card here that I made recently but never posted!  It fits perfectly into the criteria!  I have 2 of the 3 using "orange" and "string"!

I have seen this technique used for making sun rays in several places and had to give it a try too!  I used Divine Twine that I got HERE!  It's fun stuff for sure!  She has lots of fun colors to pick from! 

I also used an orange chalk from Pebbles to give some depth to the sun!

Too cute, Laurie! Love what you've done with that twine! I just received my twine order, in the mail, yesterday. It took a month and a half from a different etsy shop!! I'll have to look into your link.
