Forever and Always card

I made this card for the Card Patterns sketch challenge #148.  I loved this sketch with all it's layers.  Initially it was going to be a birthday card but I changed my mind once the papers were stuck down.
After I photographed the card and dropped it on the ground, the two charms  (which were only loosely tied with DMC thread), had moved right over to the left hand side of the card and it looked a lot better but I couldn't be bothered taking another photo and downloading it (lazy!).

Here is the sketch:


Papers:  Crate paper
Ribbons, lace and thread:  from my stash
Sentiment, pearls and brads:  Kaisercraft

I also made another card last night but it was such a comedy of errors, and the end result is nothing like I had planned and I just don't like it!!  Needless to say, that one won't be uploaded to my blog -  I guess we all have failures and this one was pretty huge!

Thanks for looking!
