Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #204

Salutations! Today's card is for Mojo Monday's Challenge #204.  At first I couldn't think of a focal for this card until I knocked over all the miscellaneous piles of art stuff at the end of my table! It's amazing what you find in piles on your desk.  I found a couple of string art flower embellishments left over from another project which was perfect for the card.

Mojo Monday's Sketch

Here is my card.

Here are a couple of close up pictures of the string art.

The string art embellishments are easy to make and the more you layer the flowers and thread the nicer they look.  I made a simple string art (Spirelli) flower tutorial here if you would like to learn how to make them.
