Bee-u-tiful Friend

Hello 'bee-utiful' friends.  Today's card is a quick share but such a happy card - especially with that adorable Bee - reminds me of the beautiful Bumble Bees that they get in New Zealand.  We always loved to see them and my Mum could tell you every fact about them - she is a crusader for Bumble Bees wink:wink!

The Bee is actually a sticker I have recycled and popped onto a Spellbinders Labels Eighteen Etched Die.  This has been popped up onto a 3D Embossing Folder - discontinued (sorry)  The card front has been popped up onto a pre-cut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives By 3L 3D Foam squares.

The sentiment is from Penny Black Inc and has been cut/embossed using Spellbinders Grommet Tags. The Die has been used as a stencil with the inside edges sponged using Imagine Memento Ink in Dandelion and a Sponge Dauber.  Want2Scrap Black Pearls have been added to each end of the tag.
