Where it all began ....

Hello ! Today we're kicking off another Funkie week over at Frilly and Funkie the difference being the Funkie team have gone Frilly for this challenge ! Kathy is our lovely host and here's what she has to say:

For this challenge, the Frilly side of the team was asked to create a project in Funkie Style, and next week, the Funkie side of the team will create a Frilly style project. To play along, we're asking you to dig deep and create any kind of project you choose, as long as it is not done in your usual style and color palette.

 Now for me this wasn't too hard to switch back to the Frilly side as this is where I started my membership of the Frilly and Funkie team.


I'm not going to go into too much detail as I'll be back on Saturday to share a step by step for how this card came together. The papers that I used are from the Tim Holtz Wallflower paper stack, which I've layered and distressed the edges before zipping around them with my sewing machine.


The roses have also been made from the same paper stack and some twine has been slotted in between them in true Frilly style.

I'll leave it there for today, but do make sure you hop over to the Frilly and Funkie blog to see the rest of the Funkie team's Frilly projects !
