SC328: Birthday Bee

Hello! I had a heck of a time getting this card finished today.... First of all, the sketch really stumped me so I wasn't going to play but I ended up looking through my stamps and decided to give it a go with this cute little bee. I finally finished the card, but had to wait to upload the photo because DD was doing her homework on the computer, then SC was acting up and I couldn't upload it. I decided to try one more time and it worked, but it appears my gallery has disappeared! Good grief! About the card.... The bee is colored with pencils and accented with glitter. The panels look pretty straight forward, but I found them a little tricky. What is that they say about measure twice, cut once? LOL The orange panel is Cuttlebugged with the numbers folder. There is supposed to be a circle to the bottom right, but I just couldn't make it work. I tried 3 different options and wasn't happy, so I decided to leave it off and add some ribbon. I might save this one for DD birthday.... Image: Stampendous Clear Set "Hap Bee Day" Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Sakure Black Gel Pen Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and True Black, SU! Pumpkin Pie, Bella Blvd. DP Embellies: Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter in "Angel Dust", Black Grosgrain Ribbon Extras: Prismas/Goo Gone, Cuttlebug Numbers Embossing Folder, EK Success 3D Dots All right, that's it for now. I hope to be back soon with more cards...I was asked to make a baby card for a co-worker, another co-worker had surgery, and a third co-worker just lost her mother. I had better get busy.... Thanks for stopping by! Angela
