A little something just for you

Just after Easter we are heading off on the pushbikes again and I am suppose to be getting things which are my responsibility for this trip ready but I snuck into the craftroom this afternoon when I should have been sorting out my clothes that I am to take on our cycle ride! ... considering I am very limited as to what I can take I didn't think it would take long to pack away 2 cycle knicks, 4 t-shirts, 2 shorts, vest, 2 thermals, 1 pair of socks, 1 pair of leggings, 4 underwear and 2 bras ... all this for 9 months!  and I was right I managed to finish the card and it took me 10 mins to pack all the above away!
I made this card following the sketch from Mojo Mondays - but I combined both the square and circle card sketches!  I also made it for Kaboodle Doodles - circles and squares and AnnaBelle Stamps blog - twine - although I wasn't very creative with the twine :( ... all I did was put it around the edge of the circle and around the card!

materials - White cardstock, Core 'dinations aquarium; MME Stella & Rose gertie papers; StazOn jet black ink, Versa Color bamboo ink; Crayola colouring pencils; Spellbinders standard circles large; 20mm white organza trim; AnnaBelle stamps green twine; AnnaBelle Stamps 'squared posies' (title) and 'stemmed flowers' stamps; Kaisercraft pearls.
Thanks for looking.
