Carrdvarks Challenge ( sketch)

I sometimes find sketch challenge a real challenge. But this time I was intrigued by this one at Caardvarks and decided to have a go. I used the new Be Happy that I received from my March win at Hero Arts. I followed the exact sketch ...it isn't so bad after all.
This is probably the most cutting that I have ever done for a card. When I decided to cut the grass, I know the process will be long and tedious. But the result is worth it.... or is it not?
I also cut out the sun image, the bee's faces (pop-up for dimensions) and finally, the sentiment.
Can you believe it? In 10 days,  I'll be off to see the Queen , I mean, London,  you know, U. K.....England!!). What should I wear, what should I bring!!???? I'm so excited and I plan to meet my hostess sista Cathy A.! Yipee!
Hope you have a happy day!
