CAS59: Bee Free

Hello there! How was your Monday? Mine was a bit disorganized; I thought I worked at 7 a.m. so I was up and ready a few minutes after 6, only to check my date book and see that I didn't work until 9 a.m.! Today was the kids first day back after Spring Break, so I had everything layed out for them to make it easier on DH. Turns out I was able to get them ready myself. I still had extra time and thought I should use it wisely, so I started my card for today's CAS Challenge over at SCS.
The theme today was New York; I wasn't going to play, but then I remembered this cute little bee stamp. I tried to color her crown like the aged patina of the original Statue of Liberty; I went strictly patriotic with the rest. I added some M.S. Crystal Fine Glitter to the wings; they have a subtle shimmer. I went all out with the fire cracker and used my Art glitter; it really packs a punch!
Image/Sentiment: Stampendous
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, SU! Real Red and Brilliant Blue
Embellies: Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter in "Polar Bear", Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter, Spare Parts Brads
Extras: Prismas/Goo Gone, Tim Holtz Piercing Ruler, Foam Tape
Thanks for stopping by!

Perfectly patriotic and cute to boot! The red and blue really pop on the crisp white background and I love that sentiment!!
