Buzzin' By

Happy Hump Day Peeps!

Don't you just love this set from SU, "Just buzzin' By". I know I do, those bees are so cute, just wish they had the sentiment, "Your the bees knees". LOL!

I originally started this card with the intentions of using Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge, for my layout. I did use it but I also strayed a bit, by adding my bees in circles and moving the three embellishments to the does it still qualify?

I colored the bee hive and the bees with my aqua painter and the SU markers, I stamped the images on watercolor paper with black stazon.

The bees wings are so cute, can't really tell from the picture but i lightly colored them with some bashful blue and then used my quickie glue pen to add some diamond dust to them. The sparkle so IRL!!!

The ribbon and DS paper are from SAB and I used my SU edge punch and some black brads. I cut out one of the bees and mounted it at the bottom by my sentiment. Those bees are kinda a booger to cut out so don't look to close! :)

I used the slit punch to add my side element from the sketch with some ribbon and twine.

Well, that is all for today, Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping!
