Hello, Beautiful Sparkle Bees


  I was so pleased with my shiny Neat & Tangled lady bug (on this card), that I wanted to try it with the bumble bee.  Whenever I make a bee-themed card I go to Echo Park "Country Drive."  For inspiration, I used this Freshly Made sketch:

I went horizontally across the bottom
sparkle/sentiment/yellow

  For my "sparkle" I added Stickles to the bee's wings and glossy accents to the bee body:



Happy Thursday!
