Bee - lieve, Card

Howdy!  Welcome! have a look around, and sit a spell.  {smile}  I had a great visit with a wonderful girl friend today.  She always makes me laugh, and we have a great time together.  Anyways, a mutual friend of ours, is having kinda a difficult time these days.  So, I set out in my craft room, to make her a sweet card!  I just want her to know that we care about her, and that she can always call.
I stopped by Mojo Monday to play along with their sketch challenge.  You see, its the first Monday of the month, so it's a contest/prize week.  So, here is this week's challenge sketch:
It was a lot of fun working with this weeks sketch, so don't be surprised if I submit more than one card for this challenge {smile}.  Here is what I created:

Recipe:  I used baked brown sugar card stock by Stampin' Up! for the card base.  Love their heavy weight card stock.  Very sturdy and beautiful colors.
The pattern paper is Just Saying, by My Minds Eye.  I just love the bright vibrant colors.   The gold accents really add a bit of sparkle. (smile).
I matted the largest pattern paper and the smallest pattern paper with the bright melon orange peel solid card stock.  The gold star pattern paper is matted onto a scrap piece of matching cardstock.  
I added a circle embellishment from this pattern paper coordinating embellishment.  It's a floral circle that has a sentiment inside. 'believe in yourself'.  I think the sentiment is perfect for our friend.  {smile}  I added a white resin crown from Melissa Frances.  I think it adds a little fanciness.  I wrapped apiece of sage green ribbon from Inspired Stamping, and tied it in a simple bow.  I added a piece of elastic trim just under the ribbon.  I love the gold arrows on the cream.  
I thought that there was something missing just below the bow.  So, I looked through my stash for some gold embellishments, and look what I found!  a gold bee.  I thought it looked great with the crown and 'believe'.  Queen Bee, and Bee-lieve in yourself.  Doesn't it look good?  I also added a trio of sequins.  A pair of small gold sequins and a large pale pink sequins.  The sequins are from Studio Calico.
Well, I need to go, so I can get this card addressed and ready to be mailed.  Take care.  and if you get a chance to play along with this weeks sketch challenge, good luck on the contest. {smile}
