Gingersnaps #126 "Supply - Raffia"

At Gingersnaps Creations this week there is a supply challenge.  Keeping in with the "Farm Fresh" monthly theme we would like to see:-


My creation for the DT is a "notice board" - I covered it with some patterned paper napkins (or serviettes depending on what part of the world or even UK you are from) - applying them using watered down PVA glue.
I then adhered the Raffia in a criss-cross pattern using brads - so that I kept the separation and randomness.  I did not want the raffia to be too perfect.  I am sure you get the gist of what I mean lol :)

I then stamped butterflies onto kraft card.  The butterflies are from a plate of stamps from Eline Huis of Marianne Design.  Seed packets/minature signs were added to finish off the piece.  Please take a look at the Gingers Blog  - as usual my fellow DT members have exceeded my expectations.  I am always quite pleased with what I have made until I see the others - way to go ladies, fabulous as per usual!!!!

I would like to enter the following challenges:-

Such an adorable photo - the colours used and the raffia/straw in my piece.
