happy birthday from a bizzy little bee!

I've been eager to share this card! It's my first one with the new All About You and All About You Additions set from the PTI June release. Ahhhhh, I love this set! I can tell you right now that it will see a lot of ink.


Flowers are colored with Copic, and cardstock is Summer Sunrise and Orange Zest.  I stamped the scalloped border with the grid design from Background Basics: Geometrics.  The sweet little bee is paper pieced and I bent his wings up just a smidge to add some dimension.  The "Happy Birthday to" is stamped between the lines from the new Library Ledger set.  I was so proud of myself for noticing how the words would fit there, and thought I had made a brilliant discovery.  Then I found a card in the DT gallery where one of them had done the same thing, lol... so I might have seen it and then just forgotten about it!  ;)

I hope you enjoy!  Have a wonderful and creative day!

Supplies:
Stamps: PTI All About You & Additions, Library Ledger
Ink: Memento Black, PTI Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest
Cardstock: PTI White, Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest
Misc: Creative Charms Gradient Gems; Copics
