Good morning! I'm excited to be celebrating Pink & Main's 5th birthday by being part of a celebratory blog hop! See all the blog hop info with links and prize details below!
I made two 'bee-day' cards for the hop.
For the first card, I stamped and masked all 3 of these bees - I couldn't choose just one of these cuties! I kept my colour scheme simple because the scene was already quite busy, and I wanted some focus for the sentiment.
I used the Happy Birthday die but I trimmed the birthday, to make B day. And then I coloured the letters yellow with Copic markers, and then added a bee-like stripe. After they were glued down, I put Stickles on the letters and on the wings, for some sparkle.
For my second card, I coloured and die cut the hive and then die cut a bunch of the tiny bees. To keep this card more clean and simple, I blended a strip of blue sky but left the rest of the panel white.
