Busy as a bee and a bee card too!

Hi there!

Wowzers, I have been busy as a bee lately! I am trying to get my crafting time organized so I spent yesterday setting up my crafty calendar in Google. Then I can remember what in the world I wanna do. So many things to do, so little time, so darn tired LOL

I created this card for a sketch challenge, but I didn't get it posted by the deadline. :( It's OK - I found some other challenges it will fit right into! I am working hard to use my stash, especially my 6x6 paper pads with all of that yummy coordinated paper. It can still be difficult to get the right combo. With this card, I think I got it! I think it turned out SO cute and of course, I wanted to share. :)

My 'Bee Happy' Card:

This card has multiple layers going on - polka dot squares, striped triangles & a floral backdrop for the bees. The solid rectangle helps the bees stand out in the middle of all the "busy"stuff. The sentiment is punched out and layered under the rectangle. See the matching bubbles on the corners? Those were made with scraps of paper, the Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio tool & round 14 bubble caps! It makes matching epoxy embellies in a jiffy. 

Here is a close up so you can see the bling and the Copic Spica pen used for 
the girl bee's eyeshadow and lipstick. I do LOVE bee-utiful bling! :) 

Stuff I Used: 
Karber 'Bee Love' Digis, Paper Smooches 'Bee Happy' Digi Sentiment 
Echo Park 'Springtime' 6x6 Paper, AMuse Studio Sugar CS, SU Melon Mambo CS
Spellbinders Wonky Rectangles, SU Decorative Label Punch
Distress Ink - Tumbled Glass, Stickles - Star Dust & Cotton Candy
Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Tool (Round 14) & Button Caps
Copics Used - Girl Bee: RV21, RV23, RV25, Copic Spica Pen - Blossom 
Boy Bee: Y21, Y23, Y26  Heart: RV29

Challenges Entered:   

Thanks for stopping by! Now I am off to relax with Hubby!

Cathy your card is simply adorable! I love all the layers and bee-utiful colors :) I think I need to go check out Karber now and see if I should make some of those bees mine too :)

The bubble caps you've used are really neat too. Need to come visit you and go to the big craft stores. Hugs, Jan
