What's the BUZZ?

There's still time to enter the "Bee Silly" contest on the Sandra Caldwell Stamp Fans FB page.  Sandra has discounted 4 "bee related" images to just $1.50 (HERE) for the contest and you can enter with as many as you like.  I've chosen the adorable #573 Buzzy Betty.  I was thrilled to use my new "Buzzing Around" die from Die-namites that I cut in half and layered with Prima flowers with button centers and bee brads from Eyelet Outlet.  I cut it twice and trimmed the bees so they could be black underneath.  The little hive in the crner is also from Eyelet Outlet and I added a crinkle ribbon bow behind it, from the Gold Bundle at DL.Art for the Outlawz Festive Fridays Use a Ribbon theme.

Here's a closeup of #573 Buzzy Betty.  She was colored with entirely with Copics and fussy cut to layer on the circular mat embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.  The sentiment was computer generated.

Here's the dimensional shot.  I popped the flowers and bees with foam which allowed the "flight path" to sort of float above the card.  I not only liked the way it looked, but I was hesitant to try gluing the thin cuts for fear of darkening the kraft paper.

The "Bee Silly" contest runs through the 26, so there's still time to enter.  Hope to see you there.

I'm also entering this in the DL.Art March Linky Challenge, the Your Scrapbook Place March AG challenge (using sponsor image), Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #54 AG, Simon Says Monday Layer it Up, Tuesday Throwdown Add Dimension, Come and Get It AG, Crafting When We Can Add Circles, Glitter and Sparkle #231 AG, the Corrosive Challenge March AG and Dragonfly Dreams Girly with Die Cut/Punch.
