Bold & Bright Card

Hi, hope everyone is having a great weekend so far.  I love working with these colors so when I saw the ad color challenge to use yellow, black & white together I knew I had to make a card.  It was also made following a sketch.
The circle I cut using my Cricut George cartridge, this is the cartridge that came in the very first Cricut and it seems like I go to it more often than any other cartridge.
I put a variety of different buttons in the center of the 3 circle and then tied some twine into bows.  I had ordered the twine several months ago and I sure don't use it often enough, I like the way it looks especially with buttons.  I had a tough time deciding what sentiment to put on this card and then I found the "bee happy" on Just Because cards cartridge, I wish I would have found it first because I think I would have put a bee in place of one of the buttons, I guess I could still put one off to the side?
I even completed the inside of this one very simply and left space for a hand written message.

After typing up this post I went back and I did add that little bee, what do you think?


Thanks for stopping by, I would love to read your comments. :)
