Have a BEE-utiful Day!

Here's sketch #170 over at the OWH Stars & Stamps blog...

and this is the card I made. I used a Penny Black image with some little bumble bees, so I added a coordinating digital SNSS sentiment. The dsp is by Echo Park, the taken with teal panel was done with a SU! Petals A Plenty ef, and the ribbon is from PizzazzAplenty.com. I colored the image with Copics.

And that's it for now...........thanks for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful Sunday!

Carol, My original thought today was to go with Penny Black but I got side tracked while looking over my stamps. I love this card. It expresses so much fun. Its like a nice spring day. The recipient can't help but to have a fun day once they look at this card. Wonderful job.

I think Penny Black should give out one of its cute stamps to every household in the world. Wouldn't that be an awesome way to spread happiness throughout the land?! In the meantime, you are doing your bit spreading happiness to all your visitors! This is adorable, Carol!!

Carol, what fun is that? And what a GREAT use of papers! I also love the flower embossing on the cardstock. I have a lot of hedgie stamps and one with bees, but I don't have that one. It's darling! You are going to make someone smile so big!!!
