Oldie for Friday

Hello Blog friends and followers, hope you are all well.  If not I send you some (((((hugs))))) in hope they might help.  Please help yourself, plenty more where they came from.  Been another busy week here at The Ranch.  Lots done round the house and garden.  
We are spending lots of time with friends this weekend, David is 70 so BIG celebrations.  Lots of preparations, things to do and make. 
Anyway here is my offering for Oldie for Friday started by Erika over at 

A little box I made for my friend Pearl.
I met Pearl when I transfered to the local Bank after moving out here to the country.  We became close friends and still are.
Box is made to fit the SB Lacy Doily Die (think that`s what it is called)
I scored the card on my Score Board to give the effect
American Seam Binding and pearls from stash

Rose made with SB Blossom Five Die
I think this was the first Rose I made with that Die.  
Even I can see that my Roses have improved a little since then. 

That`s it for today
Thank you for you visit I really appreciate it
Till next time

    Morning Wendy,

    Gorgeous card and I so love this Peach colour, just beautiful, it does go well with the Brown. Like you I like different combinations of colour so it is hard to choose though Aqua/Tea/Purple are favourites lol!

    Love & hugs
