EBTKS challenge 12: String...

I'm so excited to have been invited to be the Guest Designer with the uber talented kitchen sink girls!!! (pinch me!)
The challenge this go 'round was to use string on the card- my mind immediately went to balloons....
The card base & green layer are PTI. I die cut the balloons with the celebrations cricut cartridge. The patterned paper is from the tiny stack I got last summer at Rubber Soul in Poulsbo (WA).
A border punch of the same paper (fiskars), and the sentiment is from PTI's scattered showers (stamped in white & heat embossed). The 'string' is sewing machine thread!

This is a pretty clean & simple one- what do you think?
Thanks so much for stopping by- and a HUGE thanks to the Everything but the Kitchen Sink gals!
Head over & see what everyone else is doing with string!
