Hey, it's MY turn to choose the colors this week--Tempting Turquoise, So Saffron and Basic Black!
I must have just gotten my Basic Grey Urban Prairie when I chose these colors!!! Because that's exactly what I went for when I designed this card! I had been hoarding that little bee paper, so I decided to use it today! I got out my retired In Full Bloom set, and stamped the flower, leaves and bee on Shimmery White paper with some Black Stazon so I could watercolor them with my reinkers. The little bee was cut out and popped up, and the whole image was mounted on some oval Nesties because I wanted to use the Sweet Sunday Sketch #15 from Karen Giron.
So here it is:
This is a BIG card--5 1/2" square. This little baby will have to be hand-delivered to a special someone! I used two BG Urban Prairie papers, some scalloped Nestabilities and a little CB tag die cut for the Papertrey sentiment. Some little fun embellishments are the itty-bitty bling down the center panel edges (and on the brad), some Twinkling H20s on the flower, Jelly Roll shimmer on the bee's wings, and some little Geo Sparkler stickers on the bees' wings on the DP. I saw them on a card Janine made, and LOVED them! Here's a closeup:
I got them at Stamper's Dream, and they come in lots of cool little shapes and colors!!!
