Shabby Chic New Home

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well and dandy.When this posts i will be loading up the car to go up the road to the summer fair outside
Its on 10am till 4pm so if anyone local would like to pop by and have a chat and keep me company, that would be great.
Hubby and my laddo will be popping to check up on me a couple of times but other than that its just me :D
Also apologies if i don`t get much commenting done today as i have the fair and also its my birthday, shhhhh  :D:D
This is my last year in my 30`s :(
So anyway enough of my twaddle, lets give you a card for today and here it is.
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
1.Crafty Creations Challenge - Challenge 236 - Shabby Chic
2.Crafty Catz Challenge - Challenge 195 - Stitching with the option of material (i have used a cream leather trim and lace)

Products used are:
Cream card
First Edition papers
Faux stitching
Handmade clay heart
Hobbyhouse roses
Lace flowers
Pearl swirls
White acrylic paint
Distress tool
Cream leather trim
Inkylicious stamp - new home
Go create dies

Close up of the sentiment.

Hopefully you can tell this is leather in this pic.

And a sideways view.
Thanks so much for popping by, it means a lot :D
Happy Bank Holiday to all those who have one today too :D
Hugs Nic.xx
