I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Hap - {{Bee}} Birthday

Hi all,

Happy Monday evening.

Yesterday, I made a card using Jen's Deconstructed Sketch #52 and one of my favorite TE stamp sets, Garden Party Critters. All of the papers, the flower, button and yellow ribbon are from the TE May KI kit.

The images are colored with Copics and so are the Prima Canvas Resist flowers. These are fun! I added some Star Dust Stickles to the bee's wings for some sparkle. The image was masked, left in the Nestie and sponged with Bashful Blue and Baja Breeze ink. The bees are popped up on dimensionals.

Here's the inside:

I'm entering this card in the current Catered Crop "Rickety Rack Recipe Swap challenge, as well as Taylor's May KI blog hop and challenge. 

Stamps: Taylored Expressions Garden Party Critters set
Paper: From TE May KI kit: yellow and buttercream card stock and Pebbles Fresh Goods patterned paper
