Let It Bee...

Hey All!  I have another card for you :)  This one I came up with by putting a few different challenges together.  Paper Playtime's challenge is to use a bee; My Craft Spot wants you to emboss or use Glossy Accents; and Whimsical Designs wants to see buttons and bows.  This cute little bee comes from the Paisley cartridge and the tag comes from Once Upon a Princess.  I used Glossy Accents on the bee's cheeks and the little flower he is holding, it's kind of hard to tell, but they are glossy.  I embossed the black mat with Swiss Dots (LOVE that folder!).  I also used Spellbinders Edgeabilities Classic Bracket for the border.  I really like the pop of pink among the black and yellow, it cheers me up!  Hope it does you too :)


  1. Fantastic card! That bee is beautiful and I love the fun colors in this card! Thanks for playing at My Craft Spot!
