Challenge #89 Anything on a spool, metal and sentiment

Hello and a Happy Wednesday!!

It's time to Cook it Up with Katie, Challenge #89 is a fun one, this week Katie is looking for you to create with 

Anything from a spool (yarn, string, twine), Metal (charm, brads etc) and a Sentiment

For my sample today I went a little out of my own comfort zone and played with a  Chip board dress form shape for my main image. that I received eons ago. I started by coloring the sides with a black Copic the paper pieced some of my pattern paper on it - 

Sanded the edges and then layered onto textured paper with pop dots then a scalloped oval. I hand pieced the lower portion of my card using Basic Grey papers from Nook & Pantry 6 x 6 pad. Layered onto Black and Kraft card stock for my card base. Red Seam binding, wooden button tied with twine and a few sewing pins (Metal) from my pin cushion .
Then I found this tiny little wooden spool that was in the bag with the chip board dress form and thought I would take it one step further and wrapped with twine and added it to my main focal area.  To finish I added a Happy Birthday sentiment from Paper Trey Ink fill-able frames #4 punched out with SU large and small oval punches.

Hope you will join us this week, we would love to see your take on our recipe!
