Papercraft Star- Warmup Challenge!

Over at the new Papercraft Star Challenge Blog- it isn't officially kicked off yet, but there is a warm up challenge going on. The sketch looks like this:






I saw this morning, and decided that as soon as I got some of my Etsy listings up, I was going to do this one! I've been super into vintaging things, and using lots of twine, and embroidery thread instead of ribbon (who know's right? It's a phase!) and came up with this little gem. I really like how it turned out!



A real vintage flower... I sewed it to the Jute Twine I used.



I used my paper trimmer for the card base, and the base layer. I used Storybook for the blue layer, and the scalloped square as well. All of the colored paper is K&Co from their mega stack.
