bee birthday wishes

Hi Everyone!  How was your weekend?  Ours was really good.  (No baby yet.)  Things have been busy getting ready for the baby this week (washing clothes, car seat, blankets, etc. Procrastinator that I am, I put it off until now. lol  Things are ready now, though.)   


Today's my birthday so I thought it would be a good day to share this birthday card I created last week.  I used the adorable Bees with Cupcake image from Wild Rose Studio on my card.  Sorry the photo is a bit fuzzy.  I decided to create more of a CAS style card that really let the cute image shine.  The image is colored with copic markers.  I wrapped some twine around the corners and stitched a button on the bow.  Then, I tied some sentiment tags to the card.


After the image was colored, I added some stardust stickles to the wings and some glossy accents to the frosting on the cupcake.

I'm playing along with a couple challenges for this card.  I'm playing along with the Stamp and Create challenge which is Birthdays and the A Creative Romance challenge which is CAS cards.

Hope you all have a great rest of the week!
Niki
