Birthday rosette

I made this card for a wonderful person........ Tom along with his partner susan is the owner of suzicraft and today happens to be his birthday.last night I set to work on his card, I had to sit and think for a while as its a mans card the ideas don't flow so easy. I remembered seeing a card made on create and craft in the spellbinders hour and thought I would do something loosely based around that idea,ad I don't possess any of the dies used I had to improvise.i used the cricut and cut out 3 O's from the winter woodland cartridge I then embossed them and inked them before entwining them, I then threaded a paper strip through them. To finish it off I made a Rosette and used an inkadinkadoo sentiment. The papers are we are memory keepers. I'm so sorry for the poor picture it was taken last might on my IPhone.
Happy birthday Tom!
I've enjoyed my day off today I took my daughter on a little retail therapy before we popped into the craft shop, I did of course have to buy myself a few goodies. The day was just what was needed to take our mind of the the sad situation we have.
