and this little card didn't...get picked!

Hello! I am sharing a FUN card (it's one of a kind really) that I made for the last Paper Crafts call. It was one of my favorite cards, but sadly, it didn't get picked for the pub. Alas, more cards for me to blog about, right? 
you make me feel right at home
The category for this card is "Raid the Kitchen" (use any kitchen item as tools, accessories, designs....etc).  I love cooking and this is my kind of challenge...stamping and cooking --how perfect!
See the "white picket fence"? Those are garbage twist ties! I remember that I had to chuckle as I was making this card.  For now, I am still loving this card! You just might look at your kitchen objects in a very different way now....have FUN!

I LOVE your card, Virginia! It's DARLING!! You are so CLEVER, too. Your CREATIVE use of the twist ties as a picket fence should have won them over for sure!! Who knows, maybe the judge had to always get the garbage together and never wanted to see another twist tie in her life!! :) I think your card is a WINNER!! :) :) :)
