Buzzin' by to say hi

OMG, how come it's Thursday already?!!! What happened to the days in between now and Monday?!! At least it's nearly the weekend and I get to work from home tomorrow - yay!

Anyway, onto the card. I used this week's Sweet Stampin' challenge sketch and High Hopes' challenge to use your favourite embellishments - well I have two - dew drops and jute ribbon!

You can't really see it from the photo, but I've put Glamour Dust on the bees on the swirls and Smooch pearlised ink on the wings, enhanced by the Dew Drops so the image pops quite a bit in real life (cos this is my virtual one, lol!). Hope you like!

Papers/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, My Minds Eye Bloom & Grow paper collection
Stamps: High Hopes Sunflower Buggies (artist Meljen's Designs, you can buy from Bunny Zoe's Crafts here)
Copic Ciaos, Glamour Dust (on bees and swirls), Smooch pearlised ink (on bees' wings)
Accents: Clear Dew Drops, natual jute ribbon, string from stash
Tools: Nestabilities label die, Tim Holtz distressing tool

I love to be in your virtual world Mary and see your fabulous creations.! Love the vibrant colours - have been out in my garden today and this card reminds me of that.
I love the little dew drops and ribbon too. Those little bees are sooo cute too

I love this! It's so summery. I keep thinking that summer is over because I have to go back to work on Monday, but it's really not. Your card is so energetic and gorgeous. I love the colours.
