So grateful for you in my life

Howdy everyone, not feeling all that inspired this afternoon so I thought I would do a CAS style card.  I was watching the 'colouring on kraft cardstock' video by Danielle over at AnnaBelle Stamps - Stamp, Embellish, Create and it got my creative juices going :) So following this weeks sketch from AnnaBelle Stamps blog, coupled with Southern Girls 'diecuts and punches' challenge and Splitcoast Stampers CAS172 love challenge and also Kaboodle Doodles 'anything goes' challenge I made the following card ...

when it came to assembling the card I used the following sketch -
somehow I arranged it like the sketch (in the middle of the card) but somehow it didn't quite seem right so after alot of fiddling I finally settled on having the bulk of it in the bottom right hand corner!
materials - Bazzill Kraft card, AC robins egg cardstock; AnnaBelle Stamps 'squared posies' stamps; Staz On timber brown ink; Crayola pencils; Spellbinders petite scalloped circles large and standard circle large dies; Fiskars round the bend punch; Ranger white opal liquid pearls; Kaisercraft aqua bling; 16mm light aqua satin trim.
Thanks for looking.
