I made this card for the Bee challenge I was supposed to have with Sharon and Lori this week. Sharon still hasn’t gotten her bees, so we postponed the challenge to next week. I can’t wait that long. LOL

I will make another card for next weeks challenge. I love playing with the bees.

Julee posted a great sketch a while ago that I just had to try out.


 I varied from her sketch only that I made it into a special fold. You take this lovely May Arts ribbon off, pull on the left side and it opens up to a card 4 1/4″ x 11″.

I used Prima Cardstock, Scenic Route and Daisy D’s patterned paper.

I stamped the Stampendous Pal Topper on shimmery white cardstock, cut it out and layered it on Ruby red cardstock I had sponged with chocolate chip first.

I stamped sweet friend all around the yellow paper with Karen Foster Snap stamps. Then I added don’t worry on the top right with the bigger version of those stamps.

The flowers the bees are holding is a Prima flower. The flowers on the bottom left are punch outs from the Spring Flower punch. I punched them out in Ruby Red and sponged the petals with chocolate chip. The center is a mustard brad. I love Stampin’ Up! colored brads.

On the main image are usually black dots. I covered those up with  Amuse Twinkle Stickers. To finish it off I highlighted the darker colored parts of the bees with the Stardust glitter pen.
