Bee Happy

Today is another Craft Junkie Too Design Team day. I can't even begin to tell you how much I love being on Tracy's Design Team!! Her awesome assignments are just a small part of it. 

 The challenge for this week is:
Designer's Choice

I LOVE shaped cards and this is one of my favorites. I grabbed a tag shape from Preserves and sized it to an A2 card base (5 1/2" x 4 1/4"). Adding some layers is a wonderful technique. I inked the yellow honey-comb-like layer with some brown ink.

This adorable and simple bee is from Everyday Pop Up cards, cut to 3" the size fits perfectly into the shape at the top of the card.

This wonderful sentiment is from a Studio G set I grabbed at Joann's for $1. The black and white ribbon is from my stash. I just love how the polka-dot ribbon mimics the look of honey comb on this bee themed card.

I cut doubles of the wing layers so I could curl them and add dimension with pop dots. The wings were also coated with a layer of Stardust Stickles.

The inside of the card is finished off with scraps of the yellow polka-dot paper and this cute little bee is also from the Studio G stamp set.

That's it, please head over to Tracy's blog and see what

Super card. I love how you made the shaped card with the tag. One of my favorite things to do, though it's been awhile since I've done one. Your background paper is perfect to go along with the bee, it looks like a beehive. Thanks for playing at BBTB2.
