Bee Happy!

Hi guys, well the weather is still awful so I've done a sunny card to cheer myself up lol,
I've made my card following the fabby sketch over at Magnolia Down Under,

I've used a craft works card base for my main shape, added my paper then used Snow tex on the edges, I've had it a while and never used it so thought I'd try it but it was very dry and I don't know how wet /dry it was supposed to be lol,
my images are both from the  latest stamp club, gorgeous they are too and I've masked them together, they are coloured with my re-inkers again,
I've used the snow Tex for her wings too,
the text is made using small text stamps I have and I've stamped them on a Doo Hickey cloud die, then distressed this with my  distress ink pads, this too has the Snow Tex on,

I've used a hint of cheesecloth, a spell binders  labels tag and a  Doo Hickey Tag die in a pocket at the top, the gorgeous ribbon down the side was from a local market again,
the Prima flower has been distressed with my ink in the centre to keep in with the colour way,
I've used stickles glue in Stardust for the flower centre and the stamped flower too,

Magnolia Down Under ~ Gorgeous sketch
Simon says stamp ~ April showers bring spring flowers
Deep Ocean ~ inspired by a song ~ Dean Martin,/ The birds and the bees, the flowers and the trees

Wish the rain would stop and the sun would shine lol,
oh well catch you later!
happy crafting!
