Have a Bee-u-tiful day!

Thanks for hopping along the Die Cuttin' Diva's trail with us today!
You should have come from Pat's blog at Pat Scraps.

Here is my take on the sketch. It looks like I am the ONLY DCD Designer that didn't use a cupcake on my card. When you take the time to create and enter the sketch challenge, be sure to make it a birthday theme and follow the sketch, but have some fun with the main element of your card like I did! :)
Here is my Bee card. If I had a "Hap-Bee Birthday!" stamp I would have used it too. All the paper is from my scrap bin (but all is DCWV patterns). I used my Fiskars "threading waters" scallop border punch and some white satin ribbon across the bee piece. My yellow polka-dot paper measures 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" and the Bee is 3 1/2" cut from Create a Critter.

I couldn't resist using a My Pink Stamper sentiment from her Punny-licous set. The adorable face is a Peachy Keen stamp from their 1 1/8" Wide Eyed Kids set. The little bee trail is an old one from Studio G. Of course my bee is mounted up on an Action Wobble. :)

I couldn't resist decking out the inside of the card to match.
The "Happy Birthday" is from a Hero Arts set called Big Hugs.

I just love how this little card turned out! :) To match the sketch, I added three adorable buttons to the bottom of my card. I did lace them with some craft twine before hot gluing them in place.

Here is the Die Cuttin' Diva's sketch for this week's challenge.
