Simple Woodgrain

Hey there.
Have you been playing along at CASology?
Every week they have a 'cue word',  which floats around in my head for a few days, before I get the flash of an idea.
This week the word is ROOTS


I went down the obvious path and used a woodgrain paper (Pink Petticoat),
taking inspiration from this week's MUSE card and using it as my base, with minimal additions.

Do you like the little pin? I found it in my bead box. That's the first time I've used one of those.
Are you supposed to cover the sharp end somehow?

Challenges.

Great card! Love the simple style. tfs I wondered the same thing about pins. I was thinking you can use a metal or clear plastic earring end--found at the craft store in jewelry. That way the recipient could reuse the pin.

Great take on the challenges and such a neat pin too, it would be something that I would hoard but looks so much better on a card!

Nice card, like the way you used the paper with minimal additionals. Love the hat pin (when I use them I put the end from the back of stud earrings on the point). Of course you need to have some spare or you cant wear your earrings!!! I bought a punch thru ebay 'earring backs' as I like making the hat/lapel pins as gifts.
