Beautiful Bee

I found a wasp in the house today - no idea how he got in as all the windows are closed, and it inspired me to make this card using a Verve set I bought late last year called The Buzz.

I did a little selective inking to spell out BEE rather than BE but it was very easy to do.  I thought it fitted better on a square panel and as I'm not averse to the odd pun well…

I have to say I adore the little bee, it stamped and cut beautifully.  If it weren't already so late I'd be making a few more cards using this set tonight.

I'm entering my card in Mojo Monday Challenge #479 where Julee Tilman has designed this pretty sketch.  

You may already have noticed his shiny wings, but here's a close-up.

I loved the effect so much I added another bee to the envelope and glittered those wings too!!!  The Shopping Our Stash challenge this week is "Stickle me Elmo", so I'm entering there as well.

Thanks for stopping by, especially if you take the time to leave some feedback.  Your comments make my day,

  4. Great card! I love that cute little bee! We also had wasps get into our house recently! It was scary! When we opened the chimney flue the nest fell inside!There were 14 of them! Anyway, your card is lovely! Thanks for sharing it with us at Shopping Our Stash! Cyndi, DT
