Loved this challenge.
I went with brown burlap for the background.
I adhered it to a piece of pp I didn't care for and then sewed it down with both hand stitching and machine stitching.
The lace is pink and tied to a fishing hook on the left side of the layout. I'm counting the hook as my "something extra". I got my husband to pull it out of his tackle box. He was particularly proud that it still had a little bit of fishing line still on it.
