Bee Mine (2 Cute Ink image)

Hello, everyone!  I would like to extend a warm welcome to my newest follower - Georgie C - so nice to have you here!  I'm back today to share a Valentine's Day card. The adorable bee is the brand-new newsletter freebie from 2 Cute Ink called Bee Happy.  I coloured it with my Prismacolor pencils to match the Cupcake Inspirations colours shown below and then added loose clear glitter (SU) to the bee's wings for some sparkle.

Behind the image I wrapped silver twine in circular patterns.  The die-cut background is Taylored Expressions Blooming Hearts Cutting Plate. The sentiment stamp is from Craft Smart and it's new/never used. I stamped it in Brilliance Pearlescent Coral.  The sentiment also has a tiny bee but I inked up all but the bee. Lastly I added two pairs of pink gems.
