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 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.
