Just Add Ink......Baby Bee

Happy Friday Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card with you that I made using the sketch this week at Just Add Ink.

I am using another new stamp, new to me anyway, it is a single stamp called Baby Bumble Bee.
It is adorable! I will be needing a baby card soon, my niece is expecting and we just found out earlier this month that it is a boy.
I have been busy sewing up her some receiving blankets, I have 6 done so far and I think this card will go with them to her sometime soon.

The base of the card I Lost Lagoon card stock and then a layer of white.
The gingham DSP is from a retired pack, can't remember the name at the moment. 
For the next layer I used white and another piece of Lost Lagoon card stock that I embossed with the honeycomb EF.

The main image is stamped onto white card stock with black stazon. I used my aqua painter and Lost Lagoon ink pad to color up the little bees stripes. I used some blush blossom and just a tad bit or red for the baby's face. I added a bit of smoky slate to the wings.
The center flag piece is made with some vellum,
The sentiment is from another retired stamp set called Short & Sweet. The little stars comes from the In Colors Sequin Assortment. I glued them on with some Multi Medium and then add a tiny pearl to the centers.
Thanks for stopping by today

What an absolute cutie that bee is!! And he looks extra sweet in the pale blue. Such a gorgeous card and brilliant use of the sketch. Especially love the embossing on the panel behind the bee. Fabulous card and I'm so glad you joined us at Just Add Ink!
