Bee Happy

I had to make (as I already said) 4 cards for the same guy recently. For this one I used a layout I saw on Jen Tapler's blog, it was so useful I may use it again.

I made a 7x7 white card blank and matted the paper on to some green card stock then added it to the blank. The 3 papers on the strips are from the same sheet of paper which was in quarters. 2 strips are matted on to green and the 3rd is on to glitter yellow. The banners are cut using a Verve Die, the main image is one of their stamps too. I printed the bee happy bit and the time to party comes from the balloon set too. I used a die set to cut out the 2 bee's and 5 ladybirds. The happy birthday is a stamp that came free on a magazine.

I used lots of foam pads on this as the balloons are 3 layer deep. A good job it doesn't need to be posted !!

Thanks for stopping by today.


I am entering this in to the June Diva Dare Challenge over at www.vervestamps.blogspot.co.uk
