Just Buzzin' By



Good Morning Peeps!

Today's card is made with the Sweet Sunday Sketch on Karen Giron's Blog The Sweetest Thing.

The card is made with the fun SU set "Buzzin' By". I stamped one of the little bees onto my white circle, that I had cut out with my nesties, and colored him in with my aquapainter and some more mustard and blush blossom ink. I added just a hint of bashful blue to his wings and then covered the wings with some stardust stickles.

The sentiment is stamped onto some scrap paper and then I cut out by hand the words I wanted to use and mounted them onto some more mustard cardstock and then cut that out and glued to the circle.

The base of the card is made from more mustard card stock, that just seems like the bee color to me, I know they are probably more like yo-yo yellow, but I am afraid to pull that color out, it hasn't seen the light of day ever and who knows what might be growing in there with it!!! LOL!!!

I then used some basic black and some more mustard print patterns paper. I added some black satin ribbon I found in my stash and some black brads to the corners of both layers.

Well that is all for today, thanks again for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
