Weekend Sketch CHALLENGED!

Ugh! The mojo just isn't there today. I've been fiddling with Beate's sketch for a while, and this card just didn't turn out the way I planned. Something's not quite right...any suggestions?

I usually let Beate's sketch sit in my head for a while, but I'm headed out of town tomorrow on a girls' shopping trip. We'll be in the Chicago suburbs doing a little Christmas shopping, along with Archiver's (my first visit!), IKEA (need another piece of the Bygel rail system to hold my overflowing ribbon), the Container Store, and any other stamping stores we can find.

Have a great weekend!

Stamps: Bee Buddies (Stampendous)
Paper: Riding Hood Red, PTI Aqua Mist and white, My Mind's Eye dp
Ink: Adirondack Pitch Black
Accessories: Copic markers (100, R27, R32, R35, Y17), clear glitter pen (Spica), ribbon (PTI), Prima flower, brad (Doodlebug), photo corner punch

Oooh have fun at archivers!:-)

Hmm, maybe some brads/eyelets/baubles on the top right corner could give it some more flow. :-) I like it as it is though! Very cute!
