Hello and welcome to Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday September challenge taking place right here on my blog! I'm so glad you stopped by and hope you'll join in too!
There were many fabulous entries last month, thank you all for joining in with me! Lots of wonderful inspiration and even though it was hard choosing my top picks with a twist I had lots of fun doing so! Be sure to scroll down to see last month's Top Picks with a Twist!
As a reminder, the theme is now always....
and instead I will choose a "top pick twist".So feel free to link up all your new or recently made crafty creations for a chance to be featured next month. As mentioned, the Top Pick features now will follow a theme/twist but nobody knows what that will be until the end of the month (not even me) and will be inspired by YOUR creations. Will it be something you incorporated on your project? As always, the linky tool is at the end of the post.
Here is what I'm sharing this month:
The background was done using Rustic Wilderness and Twisted Citron ink and the smooshing technique. Then I stamped Lavinia's Trailing Ivy using Fern Green Archival ink and the Hedgehog from the clear Penny Black set Wonderful using Versafine Onyx. I colored the bouquet of flowers with my Zig Clean Color markers.
The sentiment is an oldie from Stampin Up (I have no idea which set it's from), also stamped with Archival ink and I used a retired die from Whimsy Stamps to cut it out. Some green gingham ribbon and jute twine was used to attach it to the card. I found the little butterfly (from Penny Black's set Soaring) already cut and inked in my box of extras so I added it to the card. The color matched that of the small flowers in the bouquet so it worked out well.

Last Month Top Picks with a Twist:
As mentioned previously, there is now a Top Pick Twist when it comes to my selection of Top Picks. Nobody knows what the twist will be - not even me - until the end of the month as the twist will be totally inspired by YOUR creations. This means the top picks will all have something in common.
The Top Pick Twist from the August entries is ............Keeping It Neutral! Meaning all my August Top Picks will feature neutral colors. Who knew neutral colors can make such beautiful creations!
And here they are listed in the order of entry:
