Bee thankful


     Buzz....buzzzz.  Our bee keeper has moved his nursery hives out for the year, but I had this cutie buzzing around my craft table.  He's called "Baby Fairy Bee".
     Our hostess this week at Mo's Digital Pencil is our sweet DT sistah, Debbie, and she wants to see "Thank You" projects.  I used a sketch from a couple of weeks back at Bearly Mine making yellow and black the primary colors in keeping with the bee theme.  Lots of punched and hand layered flowers that I gave a light coating of Creative Inspirations paint to for a little shimmer and shine.  I added a Memory Box Corner Bow die cut so the top left corner wasn't so bare.  The butterfly was made by punching it out in yellow and black.  I then cut the center out of the black one and glued it to the back of the yellow one slightly off to give the wings a black edging.  Both the butterfly and flowers were embossed for dimension with my EK Success embossing tool.
     Why not try for a chance at winning a $5.00 gift voucher to Mo's store this week by finding a Mo image in your stash and creating a Thank You card for the challenge.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Bearly Mine--anything goes
