Something Spooled with The Squirrel and The Fox

Well I made this card for my Best Friend's birthday some time ago.  It gave me the chance to use a stamp set I have had for a loooong while but never used and it was appropriate for The Squirrel and the Fox 'Something Spooled' Challenge

I do have to note that not only did my cotton and ribbon tape measure come from a spool but I put the cotton on one in my design. 

Also this fortnight we at The Squirrel and the Fox  are sponsored by Robyn's Fetish.
