Bitten by The Bug Challenge!

The challenge for Bitten by the Bug was to use the Mini Monograms cartridge. I had to use the word, Smile. I used Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla. I also used some old Making Memories fabric paper. If you look closely, you will see that I sewed....BY HAND...the little beads around the chocolate paper! I also added beads to the center of the pink flower. (Didn't know I was so domestic did ya? ) I have been on a glitter kick like some other stampers I know....and added some to the sentiment. Isn't everything better with glitter? I used some old ribbon and pearls to the picture anchor. (Is that what you call it?) I added a pearl to the i and a rhinestone ring around it. I was pleased with this card for a change!
