Bellarific Friday: Sketch Challenge

Good morning! Our challenge this week on Blogabella was a sketch. My order arrived yesterday and I was planning to use the new Little Peeps Flower Vase, but the stamp was too big.... It was 10:30 and I had already cut the card base and layers...I was too tired to start over! Note to self: plan ahead! Look at the size of the stamp first! The list could go on and on.... I have a stamping friend who is having a birthday, so I went with a birthday theme instead.
I used the October Afternoon Thrift Shop DP. I really like the text one.... BEE-day HUGGABUGG is colored with pencils and glittered up. I did a bit of sponging on the image panel to "age" it a bit like the paper. I used some layered felt and a button for embellishment...not sure, maybe I should have went with a smaller flower?

Adorable, love the little huggabugg, so sweet with the glittery wings. That Thrift Shop paper has been one of my faves lately, too, it has so many great patterns. Great take on that sketch!

Beautiful card. The glitter adds so much to the card and I always find your glitter projects perfect. I mean not too much, neither too less.
