Color Challenge & Twine/Hemp/String

All your robes are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
 from palaces adorned with ivory the music of the STRINGS makes you glad.
Psalm 45: 8

Hello and Welcome to our Tuesday Challenge in connection with Cooking with Cricut / Paper CraftingWorld!  Our Challenge this week was to make a project that in some way incorporated the colors in the Inspiration Chart and also included twine, hemp or string. 

I chose to decorate a 3D shape – a letter ‘A’ – as part of a Birthday Gift for my Granddaughter, Avi.  Here is the Before –

Here is the After –

I painted it Brown and then covered the top and sides with a lovely embossed paper by DCWV.  I used several of Melin’s cutting files, using the color inspiration scheme, to decorate the free-standing 3D letter. 

I used:              Oval Flourish Frame
                        PumpkinVine Flourish
                        5Pt. Flower
                        Flowerand Branch
                        Pumpkinsand Leaves

I added Recollections Gems – a bit of lace – punched daisy petals and musical notes – an artificial flower  - a twine bow –
