My Partner in Crafting Crime-Twine, Jute or String!

This fortnight at My Partner in Crafting Crime our theme is using 'Twine, Jute or String'. We have some great prizes so I would love to see some of you join in with us!
My card was made using Magnolia image stamped in Memento and coloured with Promarkers, Bloom and Grow 2x12 paper, string, Polka dot tag and green card stock.
I started with an a5 card card, and cut panels of  Bloom and Grow panels with flashes of the green of the card base to match Edwin's jumper. (My favourite paper) I then placed the image to one side, and framed them with string with knots tied all the way round. I then placed the tag, with string tied at the top through the eyelet. I then handwrote the sentiment 'Forget me not'-which I felt matched with the knotted string border.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges
Magnolia Down Under Challenges: Your favourite things
Creative Belli Challenges: Use something that starts with S (String)
4 Crafty Chicks: Spring
Do You Stack Up?: Add a Tag
Stamp Something: Anything Goes
