House-Mouse "Kit" Challenge

This week's challenge at House Mouse was somewhat elaborate. The DT were all furnished a kit, but we the challengees were supposed to try to duplicate as best we could the ingredients in their kits. Those ingredients were:
Colour theme - Brown and Cream
1 x spotty/patterned paper
Brown Ribbon
Silver thread
Stamped image
Swirl die-cut (or something similar)
embossed card (brown or cream or both)
Pearls (or diamontes)
I had to make a card for my daughter's 3rd anniversary and this HM stamp was perfect, so I decided to see if I could make the card go with the challenge. She loves brown, so I used my PTI DP for the color/spotted paper. The ribbon is also PTI. The one thing I do not have is silver thread. I also have no charms but I used my ribbon slide from Flourishes and decided that could be my charm. My background is a Divine Swirl embossing folder for my Cuttlebug and I used my Kaiser half-pearls for the pearls. Hope this counts for the challenge, but even if it doesn't, I love how it turned out anyway. Thanks for stopping by. Thanks, America, for the challenge. It's nice to be participating.
