The best is yet to come.

Good morning all. I hope you are all well. I am off to work soon once I`ve dropped my laddo off at school. I had the dreaded phone call from school yesterday. My laddo had taken  a bump to the back of the head so they phoned me to go in as he was a little teary. Luckily school is across the road so I was there in a flash. It was only a small bump but he had panicked as its the same place he split it open.
He did go back into class though after a hug and a promise of an ice cream after school.
So enough of my waffle and on to my card.
The layout will look familiar as my mum saw the wedding card i made the other day and wanted a birthday card in the same style but in rustic colours.
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
1.Fashonista Challenge - Challenge 17 - Wedding or Birthday
2.Diva`s By Design Challenge - Pretty Pearls
3.The Paper Shelter Challenge - Challenge 118 - Buttons/and or brads
Products used are:
White linen card
Paper Cellar papers
White twine
Hobby House roses
Pearls and pearl swirls
Distress tool - Frayed burlap
Woodware clear stamp - Yet to come
Spellbinders oval die.

A close up, I have 2 other woodware sentment stamps like this so you`ll be seeing this layout again I think.

And a sideways view
Thanks so much for popping by, it  means a lot :D
Hugs Nic.xx
