Feeling blue

Hi all,
Yes, I know, another post already.  Well, Daisy is at school, Martha at nursery, and I have done all the housework, etc, so I thought I would post another of my inky creations.  I am off later to the opening night (afternoon) of the Portrait Exhibition at Daisy's school.  If you missed my post about it a while ago, all the school had homework to make a portrait.  Daisy went for the collage effect, and now the school is having an exhibition all this week to show off the art work, but as today is the opening day, there are drinks and nibbles provided.  Daisy was desperate for me to come today for the food!  Then, this evening, I have another rehearsal for The Sound of Music.  We only have two weeks left before the show.  Aaagh!
Anyway, on to the card.  I have used a TH stamp and then used stamps from a Kaisercraft set and put on 3D pads to add depth.  I have distressed  all the paper and then added blue twine.  As easy as that!
See you soon.
I would like to enter this into the following:
