Beary Box Sketch# 1

I still cant see my blog. And it's not just my blog, I can't see any body's November posts. I can view them only if I select the "Newer Post" option. I'm sad and I hope it gets fine.
Anyways! I finally get to post the first
Beary Box's sketch and the card that I made using the sketch. You can visit THIS link to check out what other DT members made!
I hope you take part in the challenge!

Remember the green??? Yeah it is the SAME green, apparently it looks so much better here!

I love this card. Seriously LURVE it! I have no clue why, but I do! LOL

Please click on it and take a closer look!

The flowers are hand made. The middle part of the flowers is made using embossing paste and orange glitter.

I tried to make the stems look a bit twiggy. I did not want straight lines and certainly did not want swirls again!

Oh by the way, did you see the cute green string??? Awww it's so cute! I tied a bow and with the help of some adhesive stuck it right where all the stems were joining.

The scallop thingy is created using semi circles which were just perfectly shaped because they come out of this buckle punch that Steph sent me! (Thanks a MILLION Steph!)

The hand written sentiment is decorated with half cut sequins. I have outlined all the layers of the sentiment with markers of darker shade than the card stock.

Do you like the white outline on the pink and orange card stock? This is what made the card look so much better. Seriously!

All the sequins have been added just to make the card look a bit more nice to look at! :o)

What do you guys think?!?! :o)

(Don't say "Too much use of colour on the post and the card"! There is no such thing as TOO MUCH colour! LOL)

Luscious!!! I love these colours together and the flower bunch with that sweet little bow (cuteness!) and the white edging is a stroke of genius. It really ties it all together. SOOOOOOOoooh sweet! You ROCK! :O)

I LOVE the sequins you cut and adhered around your sentiment - that's fabulous and I've never seen anyone do it - I am definitely going to CASE that idea! Thanks for the inspiration! (And being the one of very few who visit my blog!) :)
