Birthstones at LLC

Morning Crafters,

Sorry for my absence this week but as you know my mojo went walkabouts and then last weekend's antic's certainly put paid to it returning any time soon.  A huge thank you to you all for the comments and emails left/sent to cheer me up and I'm sorry if I didn't get round to replying to you all, it took me till Monday to read all the birthday messages on Facebook :)

It's challenge time at LLC, can you believe how quick it comes round?  This month the theme is your birthstone and to tell the truth I wasn't looking forward to making my card as you know it was my birthday last weekend and therefore I'm May which is EMERALD, yes..... Emerald and I don't consider myself a green girl at all.

Having said that I am quite pleased with how this card has turned out, what do you think?  All links are at the bottom of the post.

Have a good weekend and hope to see you joining us over at LLC.
Hugs Tracy x

I think it's a beautiful card - I love the pearly beads trailing through all those gorgeous embellishments, and the distressed layers are delicious! I'm a diamond, apparently, for April - and I don't really feel like one of those either!

...and who would have thought you don't like green that much, LOL. Another vintage beauty - although Fairytale of Spring is such an old collection, I still love this paper!
