Monday Challenge #15 - Sunny Days

Hello blogger friends and happy Saturday. Another Monday challenge over at My Craft Spot. This challenge is to make a card that reminds you of summer. To me summer is (or should be) warm with flowers blooming and the bees buzzing around. Here is the card I'm entering into this weeks challenge.
Used my iRock to set gems in the flowers and in the bees crown.
A little stitching around the wings really helps them pop out. Also used pop dots to make the bees stand out.
Printed the sentiment on my computer, punched it out and inked up the edges.
The background paper was one sheet with the white flowers on it. I cut it up into squares and glued them to the brown background to give the card a little added interest. I really love this card, I think it turned out better than I thought it would.

Card Recipe
Cricut Cartridge: Kate's ABCs, Bees on page 31 cut at 2 1/4", Flower page 70 cut at 3"
