Four of a Kind (September)

I have been so anxious to share with you the card I made using my Four of a Kind September card kit.  Last month a few PTI forum friends (4 of us to be exact) got together and challenged ourselves to make a card using the exact same ingredients.  Each month one of us would supply the others in the group with a little kit of ingredients.  I started it off last month and this month, Kim Heggins has supplied the kit.  I was so glad I went first, because I don't envy the others who go after Kim.  She went so far beyond what I did, I was actually embarrassed.  Here is a little picture of the wonderful kit she put together.
Did you notice that really creative stitched brown paper sack she made to hold the little glassine bags full of supplies?  How smart was that?  Sure beats the ziplock bag I stuck all of my ingredients in!
Here's the card I made:
Kim included so many different supplies, it was so easy to complete a card.  In fact, the only thing I added that wasn't in the kit was the cardstock base and the kraft Parisian doily. Every other piece, including the twine was included in out kit.  I even cut apart the bow that came with the paper bag package and used it, it was just that perfect!   I can't wait to see what the others have come up with using their September kits. 
Make sure to visit all of these blogs to see what everyone else came up with. I think there might even be a little blog candy involved on Kim's blog!

What an incredible take on the ingredients. I just love it. I thought I'd never say this, but you are making me want that doily die. I've seen you use it so many places, and you always do it just right. Love that beautiful bow, and the twine on the dress form is fabby--makes her look like she has such a slender waist (I may try that on me!)

Cathy...I love the way you used the elements from the goodie bags on your card, very clever and such a beautiful look. The doily is a perfect fit with the dress form and button card. I have to say that all of the cards this month are just incredible and I do plan to case them all!
