Honey Bee Birthday for FreshlyMadeSketches #419

Hi Everyone.

Happy Sunday - again:-)

I have another card for you today.  I made this one using the sketch across at FreshlyMade

Honestly, I have such a problem creating cards that aren't symmetrical... there's something in my brain that just doesn't work that way, so, because I am a contrarian, I had to create something using this sketch :-)  As an aside, my Mother always said she should have called me Mary as I was always contrary :-)

Anyway, I digress :-)  I created this clean and simple card with the Honey Bee Bundle.  I die-cut the honeycomb and then used the negative space that was left behind as a mask and used my yellow ink to blend in some color.  I then adhered the die-cut honeycomb on top.

I stamped the bee, die-cut it and added a little glimmer to his wings with a gel pen, and yellow to his body with a Copic marker.  I added some So Saffron paper behind the focal layer and stamped and adhered the sentiment.  Easy.  Peasy!

Here's my card:

Of course, I had to decorate the inside!

Honey Bee for Freshly Made Inside (1 of 1)

On a personal note:

UGH!  My camera has broken........ so, I had to take these photos with my iPhone and the lighting wasn't too great.  So, that's something I am going to have to sort out tomorrow as I have more cards that I need to photograph!

Hopefully, I will be back tomorrow with another card!  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
