BBTB2 - BEE-utiful Summer

Bitten by the Bug 2
Happy Monday!!!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Today over at BBTB2 we are starting
a new challenge all about BEES!!!

There are so many cute bee images on
so many fun cartridges,
it was tough to decide which one to use!

I haven't used the bee on the
"Just Because" Cards cartridge,
so that's what I chose!

My paper comes from Prima Marketing "Doodle Deux"
that I picked up from Hobby Lobby.
I used vellum for the wings of the bee and popped
the image up on foam tape.

I cut the scallop circle from Mini Monograms
and the circle from George.

The enamel dots are from Recollection's (Michael's)
and the sentiment comes from Craftin' Desert Divas
newest stamp set Lil Bit Buggie.

I even have a video to show how it all came together!

I am also entering this into Little Scrap Pieces.

Thanks for checkin' in!!!
