Bitsy Bumblebee and a Birthday
My card features the images Bitsy Bumblebee and Bee-cause You're Special. I've colored my image with Copic markers. I've used a white 6 x 6" square base. The DP is from the Miss Carolina pad by My Mind's Eye called "Dolled Up." The black mat and die cuts (behind image) is from my stash.
I cut four corner pieces using Joy Crafts die 6002/0261 and adhered each piece to the DP so that they formed a diamond shape. I then adhered my image to a piece of DP from another My Mind's Eye pad called Lost and Found. I cut 1/8" around border around both sides and the bottom and tore the top of the border (per the sketch) for added texture. In the four corners, I have added white glitter gems, and lastly I added a small flower which I made by scrunching three Prima paper flowers and gluing them to a fourth (unscrunched) flower. The leaves are from a Martha Stewart punch (luv that punch because the leaves seem to always be the "right" size for my flowers).
The DT have all done beautiful work using this versatile little sketch. You will not want to miss having a peek at what they've done. Go to our Tuesday Morning Sketches blog, look at the great samples, then join us in this week's challenge.
Today is my Mother's-in-law 89th birthday. We are so blessed that she is still with us. She is the last parent still alive. We will be seeing her on Saturday, but our thoughts are with her on this, her special day.
