IBSIC #45: Just For You

Hi everyone-
What a beautiful day today ended being. 
We ended up taking the boys to the park and then stopped for some ice cream. 
Talk about ruining their appetites before dinner. LOL

So today is Thursday and that could only mean one thing around here. 
I love this weeks color combo!! 
I had to retake the photos several times though, since I am trying out some new backgrounds for picture taking.  I love the white backgrounds, but I want something new. 
So anyways...Here is the card I made using the above picture inspiration.
I love how this all came together so well. 
The patterned paper is from Glitz: Happy Travels. 
The jute twine, I got sometime last year and I can't seem to get my hands on anymore! :( 
Check out the shaker box. 
I used the sentiment and the dotted circle from CUTE CIRCLES.
I used my spellbinders to cut out the circles.
Then I stamped the sentiment on cream cardstock, with ColorBox Chalk: Toffee.
Added foam around the circle, to create the separation I need.  Added a few beads from my stash, placed the acetate circle cut out on top. Added a seam binding bow and a pearl brad to finish it off.
