It's our first official Dilly Beans Friday Challenge and it's an easy one. Use STRIPES, any way you want to. I decided to take a little break from Christmas and use the first Dilly Beans image I ever saw (or bought) on my teamie Jenn's blog. I immediately fell in love with #197 Framed Bumblebee Girlie , isn't she just bee-u-tiful?) and was blown away with the cute and quirky Dilly Beans designs. She's colored with Copics with a bit of gel pen detail and I used skittles at the end of her antennae. The bottom portion of her wings is layered and curled and attached only near her body so they would have a bit of dimension. The color scheme is simple using the sort of retro flowers DP from an old pack from Target and a fun yellow stripe by Heidi Grace. The little hive is a metal "quicklet" from the Eyelet Outlet I've attached over a Prima flower with a Queen&Co bee brad. Now go "bee" inspired by the rest of the DT and we'd love it if you'd play along. BTW, there's still time to grab the freebie HERE for our 3 week kick-off challenge too so we hope to see you there too. (Lots of prizes!) I'm also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge.
