Happy Bee Day

Good Morning Everyone, 

Wow where did the last week go, sorry I have not been around family issues kept getting in the way!

Anyway I am back!

Today is the start of a new challenge over at Crafty Bloggers Network! 

This months theme is Things With Wings, this challenge is sponsored by Kris at Imagine That 

 

The lucky winner will receive three digi sets of their choice!

For today's card I used the digi kit Bee n Sunflowers.

I started by selecting my topper, backing papers and sentiment the good thing about these kits is everything is set to coordinate perfectly so making it really easy to get all the elements together. I also printed out some of the embellishments from the kit. 

I printed out the honeycomb backing paper and ran this through an embossing folder from Sue Wilson, concentrate Circles I think it was called. I also printed out the black backing paper and the "bee girl" I printed the bee girl four times and decoupaged her up giving her lots of depth to make her pop. 

I added glitter to her wings and glossy accents to her eyes. 

To finish the card I matted the black onto a brown mat, and the stripe at the bottom onto brown mat as well. To finish the card I printed the sunflower and an additional little bee, cut these out and shaped. I then added a piece of ribbon and a bow and three card candi.

The challenges I would like to enter this into are:-

Challenges 4 Everyone - #28 Anything Goes
Glitter and Sparkle - # 48 Anything Goes

Thanks for looking
