Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 72: anything goes with a twist ... add twine

This is my design card for Fan-tastic challenge 72: anything goes with a twist ... add twine. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

For my card I used Aurora wings 'poppy elf''  kindly supplied by Aurora wings as sponsors of the challenge. I coloured the image with spectrum noir pens. The background papers are from my offcuts box (a good reason to visit Pixie's snippets week 163 - I feel as if I need a bit of fun in the playground at the moment. And, of course, as well of the sentiment circle, I've added some red and white twine wrapped around the card blank.

This is also for:
