Bee Happy...

Yay, it's Friday! I was in a happy mood today, so I wanted to make a happy card. My sis-in-law had an accident a couple weeks ago (she cut her hand) and had to cancel her vacation with us. We missed her very much and I know she was really sad not to have the chance to join us on our trip. I thought I'd send her a little happiness to cheer her up and let her know we are still thinking about her.
Taylor's fab sketch today was just the ticket to get me going. I started with stamping the adorable beehive image and colored it in with Copics. Next, I stamped and colored two cute bees. (Bean Tip: make a "reverse" bee image, I simply snipped the wings off the image and glued them to the other side!)
For the little circle element, I first stamped the swirly dots and then went over them with some liquid dimensionals. After stamping my sentiment and punching it out, I assembled this fun card and will send it to my sissy for some "buzzy" happiness!

Love this card. The layout is great, but the way you pulled all the pieces together are great. it's got some great visual interest with many details, but is not overwhelming. Love it, love it!
