Happy Bee-day!

Here's a birthday card I just made - all digis today!  I just love this cute little Bumble Bug that's a freebie from Creative Bug on the Loose (thank you, Naomi).  This newest member of Naomi's Summer Bug Brigade is still available as a freebie, but only until August 14, so hurry!  The background bee paper is from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles (thank you, Lisa), and the sentiment is a freebie from Desert Diva (thank you, Hannelie), and I think they both go perfectly with the Bumble Bug.


I printed the bee paper on yellow cardstock and covered a white card base.  I coloured the Bumble Bug with pencils, die cut into a wavy square, mounted on a black wavy square, added Stickles to her wings and yellow dew drops to her antennae, and then mounted on the card with foam tape.  I affixed the sentiment with foam tape and embellished the card with several yellow flowers attached with brads and a yellow rhinestone flower.  Here are the supplies used:
  • Digital Stamp, Patterned Paper, Sentiment:  Listed above
  • Colour Inspiration:  Rockwell Designs - Lemon Zest (see below)
  • Cardstock:  Staples, Recollections
  • Dies:  Spellbinders Wonky Squares
  • Coloured Pencils:  Prismacolor
  • Glitter Glue:  Stickles - Diamond
  • Flowers, Brads:  K and Company, Dollarama

  2. What a cheerful, card, Kitty, love it, and you are right, the background and sentiment go fab with the bumble bee, who is ever so cute.

    Thank for pointing me to the G&S challenge, the only reason Mimi put that is because it was her backing paper and image I used, and she had never seen them together before, LOL.

    I hope you are checking Paper Playful daily, as I see you name a lot in the winners lists, you are doing so well hun xxx

  6. All the elements worked out so perfectly together! Love the sparkles you added to her wings and those gorgeous flowers. I can't get over how different the colours look from the screen to being printed out. The screen colour is more of a creamy tan colour and here it is more of a yellowish colour. Interesting.

    I have now added you to the 'Your Gallery' portion of my blog. I'm so glad you are making use of the freebies. Thanks for the shout out and link. It is greatly appreciated.
