Bee Crafty–November challenge

Oh my goodness I am hanging my head in shame as I completely forgot to blog my card for this month’s Bee Crafty challenge.  Merrigan I hope you can forgive me!!  Thankfully we still have 10 days until the new challenge begins so I hope you will have a chance to enter.  Our theme this month is all about “explosions or exploding” - consider using an explosion of fiery, sparkly embellishments or think about creating pop up and 'exploding' cards.  Here is my card:

Bee crafty #56 - explosion

Now when I made my card it was almost firework night so I used that as my inspiration.  I used “whimsical girl” but cut her out and snipped off her flowers and added stickles to make it look like she was holding sparklers.  It looks a bit pale in the picture but IRL it is super sparkly!.  I also thought the girl looked like she was looking up at the sky at the firework display!  It is a very simple card; I just used some glittery card by DCWV and orange ric rac for a bit of a colour pop. 

The prize as always is your choice of any two downloads (with the exception of the sets & PDFs) from the bee crafty store. 

The rest of the DT have made beautiful creations so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out.  We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Heart song inspirations challenge – gold or glitter

Ooh la la creations challenge – BINGO (die cut, sparkle, ribbon)

Creative craft challenge – minimalistic

Tuesday throwdown challenge – lots of circles

Crafts and me challenge – simples

The beary sweet challenge – your beary best (3rd entry)

I really hope you will be able to join in with our challenge – don’t forget you still have 10 days left to play!  Me and hubby went to his auntie’s funeral on Thursday and I have to say it was a beautiful service and there were so many people there it was wonderful to see how loved she was.

I hope you’re having a fantastic weekend so far and that you enjoy your Sunday.  Thanks for stopping by.
