Hi everyone !
welcome back to our newest challenge :)

We really enjoyed your creations :) 
Now I am back with another challenging task for you. 
The current challenge is 
Oh So Knotty ! 

This challenge has 2 parts to it.  (Please read carefully to avoid confusion)

 You are free to make any paper crafted project , card or layout as long as
1. Your project has a KNOT  (or many knots) of some kind on it .
It can be ribbons, twins, fabric, jute or anything that can be knotted . 

2. Your project needs to be a complete black project with only Maroon or shades of maroon color on it, that means Maroon should stand out on black.
Neutrals like white, Kraft and beige are allowed but in limited amount. 
 Now that is sorted , 
Lets welcome back our premium sponsor of 2013

The fairy holds the knot in her hands :) such a creative way to incorporate a knot !

The simplicity of the image is really drawing my attention. Love the polkadot background ! 
Superb card there gal ! :)  

I embossed my card and then went for the chalkboard look.
I also love the look this spellbinders die (oval) creates when its layered.
The flower is handmade . (Sorry bout the color, the flower somehow looks a red when i click its pic.. its a lighter and brighter shade of maroon.)
Hope that you loved the challenge and the DT parade .
