OK let's comPROMISE! - Challenge at BITW.

Over at Bird is the Word the current challenge word is PROMISE.  I'm not sure whether I even like this LO now but you know what it's like.  It starts off what you picture in your head, then morphs into something completely different!!!  I'm posting it anyway as I've used some of my best paper from the Basic Grey, Indian Summer collection for it.
I used a paper doily cut in 2, which had been sprayed with Dylusions inks and buttons from a box of Papermania buttons from Christmas stock. The paper roses were from some handmade paper.
I love these photos of Abi and Faith from 2004, they are from a little series I took with my manual SLR camera and I still love the photos it produces.  It's too heavy for me now.

I used cream embroidery thread to make the trails up the sides then threaded bakers twine through the stitches.  I added bakers twine to the buttons knotted on top.  I do hope someone!!! likes it and thank you for looking and leaving any comments, I need the encouragement right now!!!
