Here's the Buzz . . .

Here's another card made with my favorite Bugs and Blooms set from Memory Box. I stamped and colored the bees with a marker but decided they were kinda plain. Thus, I stamped and embossed them on vellum, cut them out and then attached them with mini Glue Dots over the originals. When the sunflower stripes didn't show through the vellum as much as I wanted them to, I ended up coloring them again on the front of the vellum. Make sense? It's a good thing nothing else needs explaining . . . I'm not very good at it.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy, Sunflower, and Black cardstock; Memory Box Homespun Collection patterned cardstock; Vellum; Black ink pad; Sunflower marker; Memory Box Bugs and Blooms, Hero Arts Anytime Messages, and Papertrey Ink Ladybug Luck stamp sets; Black Bitty Brads; Black gingham ribbon; Paperbilities flowers; Button from Walmart; Mini Glue Dots.

I'm so tired right now I can hardly hold my head up, the cumulative effects, I'm afraid, of staying up late and getting up early all week. The futon beacons me to lay down for a bit, which may or may not be the smart thing to do. If I catch a second wind, I'll stop back later with another card. If not, I'll show it to you tomorrow. Hope your evening is a good one! Later . . .

Well, I must say I'm glad to see you only posted one card. Wouldn't want you to get over tired and not able to create on the weekend! LOL

Great card and thanks for sharing how you did it. Love the details!

Have a super day. It's cool (60s) and rainy here, which means I'm most likely housebound today.
