Morning everyone, 

and a very happy Monday!

I have a very quick posting to share this morning with a card I made for the Challenge at Live and Love Crafts.  Well, I think this has to be one of my favourite shops, and I had such fun making this card.  Virtually everything is from Live and Love Crafts with the exception of the lovely Vintage image and the roses which were from Wild Orchid Craft.  Anything I have missed came from my stash.

So, the theme this month  is 'Birthstones', and according to the chart on Sandy's Challenge Blog my birthstone is 'Pearls'  Well, what a lovely theme this is to work to.  Yes my birthday is June and I have the big one coming up on Wednesday.  I am thinking of it as just a day older than the day before!  So, my theme was PEARLS!    You know how I love the Shabby Chic style, and pockets too, so this was what I chose to make, and I loved every minute of it!

I would like to enter this into the following Challenge:

Live and Love Crafts Challenge - Birthstones (pearl)

Thanks for looking everyone, and have a lovely crafty week ahead,
