Birthday Card

I made this birthday card for a friend who has her own line of cream made from beeswax and, naturally, she loves bees!

On the bee background paper, I used a hexagon stencil and lightly sponged TH Wild Honey to faintly resemble honeycomb. On the bottom I used an EK Success border punch. This is layered on a gold dotted black layer.

I used a new Cuttlebug die by Anna Griffin "Flourish Medallion" (bottom layer), and a Spellbinders die "Opulent Ovals"  to create the top layer which is popped up with foam tape. I cut another centre layer in cream cardstock which I sponged on the edge with TH Wild Honey. The verse, embossed in fine black EP, is from a set of Just Rite stamps " Botanical Butterflies", and the little bee is an embellishment from my stash. The dotted flight path stamp is one I've had for a long time - can't say who makes it.

I created the flower from a Joy Crafts daisy die, sponged with TH Wild Honey, a gold brad and a little stickles glitter in the centre. This is mounted on a gold thread/jute string bow.

That's all for today. Thanks for stopping by!
