Busy Buzzy Bee

Evening all,

Hope you have all had a good day. I went to a friends house today which kept Charlie busy and he has now gone to sleep lets hope he stays that way. Well I have two cards to share with you today and here is the first:

The cute little bee is from Meljens Designs, he is so adorable and was a real pleasure to colour with my Promarkers. I have used my spellbinders to cut out circles from my Dovecraft Back to Basics paper pad and black card. The Lemon background card is a linen effect card from my stash. I have then used my Marianne Creatables flower die to cut the flowers and leaves. I added a little button to each flower to give them a centre. I used peeloffs coloured with Promarkers to write Mum and stuck these onto little flags that I cut myself. I got a bit scissor happy while cutting the flags and snipped a little to far so I covered it with a pearl on each flag. I then added some more pearls, Candi and a hand typed sentiment to finish the card.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - I love you Mum
A Gem of A Challenge - Sketch
Bearly-Mine - Dies
