Floating By

Good morning - here's a little card I made with the challenge over at Doodle Pantry in mind. They currently have 2 challenges running so i'm hoping to make another card later on this week to enter the other.
The digi is one of theirs called Balloon ants.

This digi fitted a tall slim card I felt, but I did struggle to embellish it at first as their didn't seem much room. The digi is coloured with my copics and then mounted with a dark brown card and paper from my stash. The sentiment is also from Doodle pantry. The string of pearls are from The Hobby House. I added 2 bumble bees - one a brad and one a button and some flowers from my stash with card candy centres.
Overall I think this has turned out better than I originally thought so I'm quite pleased xx
I would like to enter it in the following challenges -

Love it. You're right, it did need to be tall and thin but you've done a great job with the embellishments :) xx
