Trendy Twine Design Team Member

To enter my "Blogaversary Giveaway,"please click here.

I am very excited to share this very special day over at Trendy Twine where Lesley is introducing her new design team.  I am so happy to be part of the team for this term.  I love using twine on my creations and find Trendy Twine to be extra special with both two and three color twists.  I am also very excited about all of the new twine colors coming out later this year.

For the design team call, one of the projects I created was this topiary.  I incorporated the soft effects of Posy Trendy Twine throughout my project.
The topiary was created using a styrofoam ball and a wooden dowel which was covered in ribbon.  All 200+ flowers were cut from the Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge.  Each flower was then inserted into the styrofoam ball with pearl stick pins.
I created a twine flower with a button center and adhered it to the ribbon bow.  Some Posy twine was also added to the butterfly which was cut from the Graphically Speaking cartridge.  Pearl stickers were added to the butterfly so it would coordinate with the topiary.  The butterfly was simply attached to the wooden dowel with a couple of glue dots.
My project was finished off by wrapping more twine around the top of the flower pot.
Please remember to leave a comment on all of the design team blogs including the Trendy Twine blog in order to be entered to win a Trendy Twine spool of your choice.  You will have the opportunity to select any one of the twine colors available from Annie's Paper Boutique and there will be 14 new colors released later this year, that is so exciting to have even more yummy colors of twine!  Here is the new Trendy Twine DesignTeam:
