The Projects:
Each of my cards today were created using the same supplies - baker's twine, embellishments, and cardstock. The pre-made embellishments from Chic Tags made these cards come together rather quickly, and the twine from The Twinery pulled it all together. 

For my first card, I used The Twinery's Solid Pink Sorbet twine and various embellishments from the Chic Tags Cloud 9 collection.  I can see how these embellishments would be great for layouts or pocket scrapbooking, but they were just asking me to use them on a card. :o)
As soon as I saw these wood veneer "sequins" from Chic Tags, I knew I needed to use them. They would be great colored with mist or ink, but I decided to leave them au naturale here.

My second card again uses the squares, clips, and mini icons from Chic Tags, but this time I paired them up with The Twinery's Ocean twine. I love the Ocean color - it's just muted enough, but still a great pop of color.
These cards were quick and easy to make, but I am really happy with how they turned out.

Thanks for stopping by today!
