Happy Bee Day~!

It's been so very cold and snowy here that I wanted to make a card that's bright and cheerful. Maybe it will magically bring us some warmer spring weather...

The biggest challenge in this card was the placement. I'd cut out all the elements individually and glued some of the backgrounds before I realized that the sketch I envisioned in my head just wasn't going to work.

A little bit of playing around and I got a card I'm happy with.

This week's Wednesday challenge at Simon Says Stamp is anything with Twine/string, so I'm entering this card.

  1. It sounds like we create in a similar manner. I often get all the bits done and then realise I cannot get them to go together like I thought they should. This card works well! Lovely colours and colouring. Such a great design!

    1. Thank you so much for your sweet comment, Kylie!

      Although it's a bummer when a card doesn't come together, I always think of Bob Ross and how a mistake becomes a happy accident. Somehow, it all works out in the end, and sometimes I end up with a card that's even better.

  2. Adorable card!! That image and sentiment is just too cute!!
