A Cute Critter Card - Larua's sketch 21 @ 2s4y

Here is my card this week for 2sketches4you. The uber talented Laura created the sketch this week. I have many ideas for this one and if I can get another card done with this sketch, I will try to get it posted. There is also a bonus sketch from Dawne that I hope to get to, too. I combined the sketch with the caardvarks challenge to use a critter on your card. I love it when I see a sketch or a challenge and I sit down in my scrapbook room and the card just comes to life. It is my escape from the world down in my scrapbook room while I create a card, layout, or alter something. I just went and purged many things from my stash and cleaned my room up. I am still working on some organizing and my room was badly in need of a cleaning, so it feels so nice to sit down in my clean space. If anyone is interested, I will post here and let you know when I list my stuff (mostly retired Stampin’ Up! sets) for sale.


I used vellum for the wings on the little bee……

I finished the inside of this card to match (I rarely do it), but the inside sentiment was screaming for me to do it……hehe……
All Supplies are Stampin’ Up! (with the exception of the thread). I used my Nestabilities for the scallop circle on the front.
Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Summer Sun, So Saffron
Patterned Paper: Good Morning Sunshine
Stamp set: Just Buzzin’ By
Other: Vellum, ¼ inch grosgrain ribbon in Basic Black and Whisper White, Stampin’ Write markers, Scallop edge punch, uni-ball Signo gel pen, Basic Black ink pad

  16. Wow, Amy--this is such a cute card with lots of interesting details (like the vellum wings--a stroke of genius!). I love honeybees. The agricultural colleges in SC used to call my grandfather with their questions because he had kept so many hives for so long (around 500, I think). Do you know...you can hold the drone bees in your hand without getting stung? They don't have a stinger. It just kindof tickles while they crawl around...

    What's REALLY perfect is that I'm eating Cheerios with honey RIGHT NOW as we speak and I look at your adorable honey card...
    Is that great or what?! ;)

    Hugs from Texas,
