School's out, the monsters are loose!

Well did I lie about the weather yesterday or what, It was honestly beautiful when I wrote my post, then the heavens opened, so I am not going to tempt fate today.  No mention of the S** word at all!  My sons have their school photo today, I haven't bought one of them in the last 2 years as my oldest always seems to make weird faces during the photo shoot, let's hope things go better today (am not expecting too much though as my 21month old will be sitting in on this one!!!!)

Onto today's card

I have used Pink petticoat backing papers for this card and my trusty old Fiskars boarder punch.

The stamp is from Lili of the valley called 'Aeroplane' and has been coloured with pro markers.  I have distressed the wheet of white card with brown ink around the edges.

I have wrapped more thread around the base of the topper(seems to be my favourite thing at the moment!) Then I have attatched the sentiment circle (again from Lili of the valley) which has been inked with orange and brown.

I have threaded the buttons and attatched them to the bottom of the card.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges Use something new(New sentiment stamp and image stamp)

Thank you in advance for any lovely comments.
