Bumble Bee Card

Hello everyone out there, I hope you have nice weather like we do over here in Portugal, it is so nice I don't want to be inside.. I have still manged to do a couple of crafty bits, while sitting in the sun..cutting out and some colouring.


This card I made last weekend, It is part of a set of 8, I used up some papers from Making Cards magazine, I was only going to make one, but was enjoying my time in my craft room and made 8.


Here is the card..


The basic easel is made us A4 white card stock, I then layered using Pale yellow card stock, then the Patterned Vellum, adding some ribbon. On the sentiment I used a paper pricker to add a small pattern along both edges, and embossed some white card, then added the sentiment to the top over some matching ribbon.
The easel part of the card is just 14cm square pale yellow and vellum again with the cute  bumble bee.


I am entering this card into the following competitions,
