DT Call at Belles 'n Whistles - My Submission!

Hello friends, Belles 'n Whistles are providing the rare opportunity for you and I to answer their DT call.  Not sure about you, but I'm certainly going to try my luck. I have been a fan of Elisabeth Bell's images since I started this craft and my first purchased image of hers was PenPal, which is still a favourite.  Since then, I've purchased quite a few more from the Belles 'n Whistles shop and only recently received this little cutie, she's called Beary Big Hugs. This is the first time you're seeing her on a card on my blog.  To even be considered as a DT member would be an extreme honour.  Without any further ado, here is my submission. I hope you like my creation as much as I enjoyed making it.  If you are going to answer the DT call... I wish you all the best as well!

Base of card: Chocolate brown AC.  The striped and spotted DP is from a South African company this time, www.paperexplosion.co.za - I just love these 2 pieces (you know me, love my Pinks and Browns). They are new, also being used for the first time here. The pink flowers are also new, bought this morning from the Scrapbook Shop. I placed bronzy brown roses in the centre. Further embellies are a satin spotted ribbon over a brown and silver organza one, fitted my trademark pearlised hatpin through that with a couple of pearlised beads and 2 additional pearls in the corner to complete.

This is the opportunity of a lifetime... wish me luck!  Take care, hugs Sharon xoxox
