Freestyle Fridays

A few weeks ago Regina did me a huge favor and knowing her love of vintage, ribbons and buttons, I sent her this card.  Hopefully by the time she reads this it will have arrived.
I picked out the DSP first, in this case, Everyday Enchantment, and built it from there.  I thought Strawberry Slush would make a great base and by the way, you hardly see it used.  The die from Dress Up was cut with Very Vanilla and using a dauber I applied Early Espresso.  I actually "sewed" the buttons from the Artisan Embellishment Kit with Linen Thread.  A first for me!  To make the thread thingy (I have no idea what it's called) I used a dog bone die and cut off the edges.  I tried to had cut one and it came out all lopsided and that just wouldn't do.  I then wrapped some linen thread around that.  The sentiment is from the Another Thank You Photopolymer Set.  Also added some non-SU crochet trim.  I got the original idea from a mini thank you card I received from placing an online order from a die company last year.  It's been sitting on my craft table all this time waiting to be replicated. 
Thank you Regina for helping me acquire a much loved necklace.  I couldn't have done it without you! 
********REGINA'S MISSION********
As mentioned above, Strawberry Slush is hardly ever seen in cardmaking.  Maybe it's because the sun is setting sooner?  Not sure.  Anyhow, Regina, your mission this week, and as always, if you choose to accept it, is to use Strawberry Slush AND ribbon.  Now get those ideas flowing and get creating :)
See Ya Next Week!

Awesome card, Julie, and a VERY creative way to make the thread "spool"!! Another Thank You happens to be one of my favorite stamp sets at the moment, and I look forward to receiving this card!!!! BTW, I was happy to help you get your much loved necklace and hope you're enjoying it.
