Bite Me

Hi there!! Today I wanted to make a card for the Trendy Twine Challenge using my Cherry Cupcake twine and Jaded Blossom stamps! Trendy Twines Challenge requires you to use Trendy Twine or embroidery floss and it has to be a Valentine project! 
    Well, I just LOVE my new stamps from Jaded Blossom and had to use the BITE ME stamp!! I instantly knew I wanted to make a card using the Corset from Cricuts Tie The Knot Cartridge with that saying! The twine was the added FUN to the card! 

Here are two versions for you!
Isn't this Cute!?!?!?

Just a tad naughtier ;)
