Trendy Twine Tuesday: Lucky enough to have you

It's Trendy Twine Tuesday, and the 1st one for March, so today the whole design team has projects for you!
We went with a somewhat "St Patrick's Day" theme this month, and used Twisted Lime twine.

For my project I decided to make a birthday card for my e-friend Alice. See, everyone needs an Alice in their life! :-) She is kind and loving, beautiful inside and out. One of the sweetest persons I ever (not) met... ;-) I really hope I will meet her for real one day! It might take a while before it happens, because she lives in London... :-S
So in the meantime I will just be sending a little paper love her way. I thought this sentiment (by Papertrey Ink (Big Birthday sentiments)) was perfect for my clover card and for Alice!... ;-) I was looking for a "one in a  million" sentiment when I came across this one... ;-) I am definitely lucky to have her be a part of my life, even if it's only the virtual part... :-) One of the things I really love about acrylic stamps is how you can bend them and stamp a sentiment in a curve... :-)

I initially used twine on my leaves too but didn't like the look of it and removed it, I didn't think it was possible but there is such a thing as too much twine on a project!... *gasp* o.O
The front panel is on pop dots which allows space for the twine all around. And now that I am all finished and my picture is taken I suddenly wonder, why on earth didn't I fold those leaves down the middle and only glued them partially to give them dimension? The answer is simple: I am a victim of the post office. When I make a card now I often ponder wether it will fit into the dreaded 1/4 inch slot limit or not... I think I had that in the back of my mind when I decided to glue everything flat... ;-)

I think it's an adorable card! Make sure you don't tell Lesley that it's possible to ever have too much twine on something.
