SD "Spring has Sprung" Challenge


Well, Spring may have sprung, but we had snowflakes yesterday so I don't think Mother Nature got the memo. lol  However, over on the Scrapper's Delights challenge blog, we did get the memo because the  "Spring has Sprung" challenge has kicked off!  Sooo, pull out your leftover pastel papers and bunny images and join us! 

Here's my creation using the Bee ( I am preparing this post I realized that I am doing another post about bees)...

I colored this bee up with Copics and added some Stickles on the wings.  I used the Wax Fruit Co. honeycomb image for the background.  Funny thing is I don't like bees, I am one of those crazy people who will take out a window just to either kill or get away from a bee.  I don't buy the whole theory that they will not bother you if you don't bother them.  *gigl* 

I printed the flower out twice so that I could cut it out and have an "out-of-the-box" look.  I layered multiple cardstocks or a black card base.  I added the sentiment which I typed up on the computer , but actually got it from CTMH stamp set (slightly changed it up).  I finished it all off with 3 buttons I layered and some twine I made. 

Head over to the SD challenge blog and join us for the Spring has Sprung challenge that will run from April 8th - April 21st.  Also, check out the other awesome creations from the DTs as well as Janice's new releases.
