Look away Jamie! ;-)

Good evening! I know it's late but I really wanted to post this card I've made for this weeks Case Study challenge which finishes soon, coincidentally it's also Jamie's birthday card so while he was watching Sky Sports or some rubbish, I put this together, and it's using some of my 'best stash', IE the bits you'd normally just gaze at! On this card it's this sparkly metal frame and this cute little corkscrew charm that I only have the one of so would usually leave it in the jar!! I'm pretty pleased with how it's come out though so hopefully he likes it! Thanks for looking!
