Rusty Chicken Wire card

Hi folks!  I hope you're having a great Monday.  We got lots of rain over the weekend (yay) and the temperatures are wonderful! 

I pulled out some of my newest toys from Classy Cards 'n Such and created this card.  I used the brand new Chicken Wire die (Cheery Lynn Designs) and transformed the cardstock die cut with a Faux Rusty Metal technique, and then I adhered this to a piece of patterned paper from the Harvest Lane 6x6 pad.  I stamped the sentiment (from Stampavie's With Love set) directly onto one of the little tags that is in the Harvest Lane 6x6 pad.  I wrapped some linen thread around the middle and then adhered the sentiment with Joy foam pads (small).  The pretty flower and leaves are from Judy's Blooms die set (Cheery Lynn Designs).  I die cut the flowers from vanilla cardstock and then sponged some rusty orange ink onto the petals.  Once the ink was dry, I turned the petals over onto a Craft Molding Mat and used a stylus from the Paper Blossoms Tool Kit to give the petals a curved shape.

Look at the chicken wire on this card.  I cut that from kraft cardstock - yup, kraft!  I used a Faux Rusty Metal technique from Technique Junkies and some Antique Silver paint from Creative Inspirations Paint to transform this from plain kraft cardstock to rusty metal.  Isn't that cool?  :-)    

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Cheery Lynn Designs - Frame It (I used the Chicken Wire frame.)
Addicted to Stamps - Autumn Colors

Hope you have a great week!  :-)
