Sweet Bees


I just love bees! I love to watch them and I love what they do for us . . . you know, make fruit and veggies! The minute I Stampin' Up! released a preview of this set, I knew I HAD to have it. So, why, you ask, is this the first card using this set posted on this blog? It is worse than even that . . . this is the first card I've MADE using this set even though I've had it for months. *hanging my head in shame* Oh well - better late than never, right?! Aren't the bees just the sweetest? And pink bees - even better!


The layout for this card is actually a CASE of one of my own cards. See the card to the right? That was one of my SU! Convention 2007 swap cards. For today's card, I added an extra layer and used texture plates on the So Saffron and the Pretty-in-Pink layer - the texture doesn't show at all in the photo which is a shame because it really gives it some extra pizazz. I also tied paper 'ribbons' on to the tags. What do you think of my changes?

Hee! I have a set like that, too... Fifth Avenue Floral... used it once and it was the first set I picked out of the catty! I thought I'd use it sooo much!

I love your case though! What a fun design for cute little bees!
