Bumble Bee Birthday Card

Hello again! My best friend has a birthday this week. To celebrate, I sent her this bumble bee birthday card.


I created the card with a monochromatic feel using Smoothie cardstock and ink. The embossing folder is Cuttlebug's Honeycomb. The stamped honecombs were cut using the Artbooking cartridge. And, the sentiment and bee are from the Happy Everything Operation Smile stamp set, which retires this month. I used a little bling to show the bee's path. 


I forgot to take a picture of the inside before I wrote on it, so I apologize for the poor picture quality here. I stamped some more honeycombs in the bottom right corner with the sentiment, also from the Happy Everything stamp set.



Ingredients: 
Happy Scrapping, My Artsy Friends!

    1. Thanks for looking, Deb! I sometimes feel like I don't use Smoothie enough. I have a son, so not a lot of pink happens in my house. Have to use it when I can!
