Happ-Bee Birthday

Are you ready for a new challenge at Catch The Bug?! Well, it's time for another "Stella Says Sketch" challenge!  Gotta love Stella and her sketches!  (By the way, in case you haven't checked, lately, there are some NEW Stella images in the store!)  Anyway, back to the challenge info! You can win one of four digi prize packs from Bugaboo Stamps just for playing along!  Hurry over to Catch The Bug to link up and win.  Check out the awesome creations from the team, too, while you're there!

Also, I wanted to let you know that Bugaboo Stamps is sponsoring Card Cupids this week!  The theme is animals, and it must be a card for a child.  Hurry over there and play along, too, for another chance to win an awesome prize from Bugaboo Stamps!

My card uses the image Bees - Flower from Bugaboo Stamps, and colored with Promarkers.  I used a clear glaze pen to add shine to the wings.  The papers are all from my stash, as are the gemstone flourishes.  The sentiment is by Sentiments 4 You and is punched with oval and scalloped oval punches.  I made a penant/bunting pieces to attach on one side if the image.  This was made with my new penant punch maker by Ephinany Crafts.  The Epoxy shapes for these are perfect for making your own embellishments!
