Tuesday Morning Sketches: Challenge #52

Good morning! It's time for another sketch challenge from Melissa over at Tuesday Morning Sketches. This week our sponsor is Die Cuts R Us, an online crafting store.
I choose to go with a summer theme, as summer is finally in full swing. Woo Hoo! I love the hot weather! And who doesn't like to bar-b-que?! I had this paper and ribbon in my stash and thought it would be perfect for this cute, little Stampendous bee.
The bee is colored with Prismas and I have added some glitter to the wings and antennaes. The image is cut and layered with Nestabilities. I had originally planned to tie a knot with the ribbon, but found that the ants were upside down on the "tails" of the knot. Instead I just trimmed off the tails and used a glue dot in the back to hold the knot down and keep it together.
Image: Stampendous
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and Pure Black, Carolee's Creations DP, The Paper Studio DP
Embellies: Barbara Trombleys Art Glitter, Carolee's Grosgrain Ribbon
Extras: Prismas/Goo Gone, Spellbinders Nestabilities, EK Success 3D Dots
I hope you'll stop by the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog to check out the DT's cards, and then play along too! There are also links to the individual blogs in my sidebar.
Thanks for stopping by today; have a good one!

As soon as I saw this one on TMS, I knew it was yours. It is adorable. The ant ribbon and dsp is perfect with this image. I'm wanting a hot dog right now. Great summery card.

This card is just too cute, Angela! How did you ever manage to line up that ant so perfectly?? The black scallop peeking out is a wonderful pop of contrast. All the elements from the fun image to the DP to the ribbon make for the ultimate summer card!!
