S.O.S. Challenge at Wee Memories

Hey there! The most recent challenge over at Wee Memories is to create an S.O.S. card (using scallops, orange, and string)---isn't that clever?!?! Wee Memories' DT member, Michele, came up with that one! She's so creative!

Here's my S.O.S. card:

Those whimsical pumpkins are the "Pumpkin Patch Border" stamp from DeNami Design! So festive! I created the strips on the left with Papertrey Ink's "Text-Style Halloween Prints" paper and some scalloped-edge scissors. I wrapped the twine around the orange panel twice and tied a knot. Then I took some scraps of twine that I had in my stash and tied them on (in an attempt to add a rustic touch and mirror the swirls in the pumpkin image). Here's a close-up:

I hope you like it! Have a fun and relaxing weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
