Meljen's Designs & Splitcoast Stampers Technique

This week at Meljen's Designs the challenge is to use Twine or String.  That works perfectly with the spotlight technique at Splitcoast Stampers this week called Spirelli.  I think my card turned out pretty cool, don't you?  I will be sending this to Operation Write Home for the Archway Cookie challenge - 5,000 Love/Valentine's Cards = 5,000 packages of Archway Cookies for our deployed troops.  Don't they deserve a cookie?!  Go make some Love cards and get them to an OWH shipper by December 10!!!

Meljen's Designs - twine or string
Card Makin' Mamas - sentiment
I used this sketch from Jen del Muro at iheart2stamp as my inspiration:
