My first post on my new blog is for Our Creative Corner's challenge, light and dark neutrals. I got some new DP paper and loved this door image on one of Bo Bunny's Timepiece Collection. I cut it and rounded the top corners then distressed and inked around the edges. The branch style flourishes were cut from the Sizzix decorative accent die and bark roll. I then twisted it through some wired raffia all around the door. I continued the bark roll with the bird and 'ribbon' strip behind the sentiment. The bark roll was not the simplest thing to work with let me tell you, but I love the effect it gives!
