Bright Smiley Flower - CCMC329

This week's sketch at Create with Connie & Mary was kinda odd looking to me :P I really didn't know what to do with it, but I knew that I did not want to make another Christmas card. Since it's been kinda gray and snowy here in Montreal, I decided to make something bright and cheerful with the Sweet Stuff stamp set. I figured a bunch of gold sequins would work well with this card, and this is what I ended up with. Not sure if I like it, but I give up trying to change it :)
