Shopping Our Stash #67 - Wooden it be Nice?

This week at Shopping our Stash we're challenging you to think wood: trees, woodgrain patterns, wooden embellishments...that sort of thing!

I've dug down deep into the stash to find both woodgrain & wood veneer flags - I bought the Cosmo Cricket "Wanted" pad thinking it would be a lot more cowboy-ish. I've struggled to use most of the patterns, so this was a good opportunity. Likewise, I won the veneer flag pieces, and have only used a few. So:

Supplies: papers from Cosmo Cricket "Wanted;"
wood veneer flags from Studio Calico;
hemp twine from Dee at the Farmer's Market;
sentiment from Paper Smooches;
Vintage Photo distress ink
I tied a knot in each end of the twine, and adhered it with the arc I wanted for the banner with a little dab of Tombow Mono-multi glue. I weighed it down with a book until it was dry, and then used the Tombow glue to adhere the flags to both the twine & the card.

Check out the rest of the design team's takes:
