Cute Bee Happy Birthday Card


The summer heat continues to beat down on us here in Oklahoma and I'm thankful that each day gets us closer to fall. I have a tendency to start making fall cards really early. Even though it's hot outside when I'm in my craft room I have to remind myself that it's still summer. When making this Cute Bee Happy Birthday Card the summery colors in the retired Sunshine & Sprinkles dsp by Stampin' Up! worked perfectly. The layout is from this weeks sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. Their sponsor this week is Bugaboo Digi Stamps and I've used their Cute Bee Flower image and colored it with my Copic markers. For added detail I printed the image on polka dot melon mambo paper and fussy cut the flower. The wings of the bee were colored with a C3 marker and I added diamond Stickles for a glittery effect. The clouds were sponged on using Bashful Blue ink (retired). I added the sentiment circle and used a Hero Arts Happy Birthday stamp. The final addition were the three yellow polka dot brads by The Paper Studio. I hope this card helps to brighten your day. Thanks for stopping by!
