You'll Look Sweet

Hello again, it's been quite a reasonable day today after the storm yesterday. Our granddaughter came to stay overnight but has a cold. She was fine until I went out with friends for tea, I ordered some fish and chips for her as she really loves fish but by the time it came she was complaining of sore ears and ended up falling asleep on me. Our youngest son had met us there so I got him to carry her out to the car for me. I left her home with hubby (she had already drifted off to sleep again) and went off to the chemist for some Panadol as she had a temperature as well and the only liquid medicine I had in the cupboard expired in 2009!!! After waking her up and dosing her with the Panadol she still wanted her story but closed her eyes as soon as I got to the end and was asleep in seconds. Hope she is better in the morning as our DIL is helping out at the school tomorrow afternoon and that is why she is here. I thought it would save her rushing around tomorrow bringing her down and we always enjoy having her stay over.
After she went to bed I watched Law & Order and then sat down to make my card, spent most of the time trying to find what I did with the die I used to make the rosette on the front. As you can see I did find it.
I've used SU Early Espresso for my basecard and the a layer of light beige textured card from stash. I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink and also distressed them with an edge distresser. The DP is from My Mind's Eye and I added some lace, the rosette with a pink sparkly bling on top. I stamped the image and the sentiment onto the light beige card with SU Basic Brown ink -distressed the image and cut around the sentiment and just ink distressed that piece. I also decorated the inside with the DP and a torn piece of beige cardstock which I again distressed and added a birthday sentiment from Stamp-It called "Tall Birthday"
Sorry the scan is pretty lousy if I get a chance will try and take a picture to upload.
