Did you say Burlap?

This week's challenge over at the City Crafter Challenge Blog is called "Burlap Love".  Yup, that's the challenge, use burlap on our creations.  Back in February I purchased some grass green burlap and thought it would go nicely with this paper I recently purchased:

 
Burlap is fun to use on a card as it adds a touch of texture.  Believe it or not this is the first I have used this green burlap and I'm so happy the challenge inspired me to use it.  I think I'm on to something here, more burlap cards to come :)
 
Items used:  Hero Arts stamp - apples and sentiment, Doodlebug Designs fruit stand double-sided paper, burlap, ribbon and watercolor pencils.
 
Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy an apple why don't ya :)

I took inspiration not only from the pretty flower colors, but from the grey and white polka dots and the touch of turquoise:

A few cards....

It's been some time since I last posted some cards.  Not sure why, just busy I guess.  Or maybe too lazy, that's it I have been busy & lazy at the same time.  Anyway here are a few cards I made recently:


1. Lawn fawn stamps, love this little set of paper airplanes:

 
2. Flower background from the Graphics Fairy blog.  Butterfly is a Kaiser Craft stamp.

 
3. New set for me from Paper Smooches.  Design paper from Amy Tangerine.
 
Thanks for stopping by today :)

I decided to go with Lesley's challenge photo.  I took inspiration for my card from the pretty, soft colors in the photo.
