Compose a Card Challenge #9

Here's my take on Becky's challenge. I'm not a colorful kinda girl, and I have difficulty with matching patterned papers, so I chose paper from Black and White Basics. To give it a pop of color, I chose Pure Poppy, which is one of my absolute favorite PTI colors. I also thought it would be a good time to use the tab from Mini Scrapbook Series. I tried to balance the elements. Then, it still looked incomplete so I added the twine along the left edge. It's my first ever 5x5 card, and I really like this size. Now...to find envelopes...

Card Details (All supplies PTI unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Mini Scrapbook Series: Tabs, Fillable Frames #1, Butterfly Dreams
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: Kraft, Black and White Basics, Pure Poppy
Other: Vintage White Button, Twine, MM felt flower
Size: 5"x 5"
