I've made a card today

This is the first time for weeks that I've actually sat down and made one card in a day. I'm hoping that my tablets are beginning to take effect. I hope it's not wishful thinking! It looks a very simple card and when I've looked carefully at the photograph it doesn't look very good. However, I have to say that it looks much better IRL. I used a small 6x6 card blank by Craft UK and the reddish brown paper, that I used for the mat and the Memory Box ringed buckle, is by Costco. The flower in the centre of the buckle is by Wild Orchid Crafts. The Arboscello tree and the wrought iron fence are also Memory Box dies and were cut with Papermill card. The backing paper which has stripes made up of spots (how about that?) is by First Editions and is in a pad called Hideaway. After sticking down the tree I used Deco Art's Glamour Dust to give it a bit of bling. It looks very pretty.

Thank you for all those who have sent me get well messages, it's much appreciated. Stay happy.

I'm entering it in to the following challenges:
Moving Along With the Times Challenge 130 - Spots and Stripes
Papertake Weekly - Die Cutie Special, I think that little fence is very cute!
Simon Says Stamp - Spots and/or Stripes with the option of Memory Box dies
