Embellishments

Hello, friends! I was going to enter my card for Avery Elle's Challenge (Embellishments) and I just found out that I missed the deadline! Boohoo! However, this challenge still provided me the chance to play with some new -to-me goodies : Avery Elle Stamp set To The Point and Basic Grey paper (Fresh Cut). I have decided to share the card and may as well enter the challenge here instead.   
make a wish
One of my favorite things to do is stamping on pattern paper. It provides you instant gratification and enjoyment! 
 I had so much fun adding the embellishments to this card. It's been a while since I added gems and buttons to cards. The sequins really took over the embellishment department these days!

I have been busy commenting on Virginia's View Challenge entries. I am trying my best to comment on every entry and still have a bit to catch up... I feel that since I can not give everyone a prize, a comment is the least I can do. So if I haven't stopped by your blogs lately, you know why :) 

edit: This card is also featured here in CARDS blog. Yay!
Thanks for stopping by!

What fun this card is...I've never stamped on patterned paper to this degree, but I'm gonna start now. You SHOULD win the Avery Elle DT challenge with your card. WHERE do you find time to comment on each Virginia View entry? Don't get me wrong, I love it, but that's seems like a monumental task based on the number of entries. You ARE such a good hostess.
