Hap-bee Birthday!

Good evening!
I hope you are well? I appear to be coming down with a horrid chesty cough...hope it doesn't get any worse...

Anyway, I have just made a card that I was going to blog tomorrow, but one of the challenges I want to enter it into finishes in a little over an hour, so I'm blogging it now!

I haven't stamped an image! Shock horror! I have, for the first time, tried my hand at punch art! This cute little bee was created using one of the small baubles from the Holiday Ornaments Framelits, the 1/2in circle punch and the I {heart} Hearts punch. The wings are two of the hearts for each side, punch out of vellum, and folded in half. The stripes were cut out of a black punched bauble.

The 'hap-bee' part of the sentiment was hand written and the 'birthday' bit is from Stacks Of Wishes. The zippy swirl is also hand drawn. I finished with some golden gems from my stash.

Cardstock - Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, Whisper White
Stamps - Stacks Of Wishes
Ink - Basic Black
Embossing Folder - Honeycomb
Punches & Dies - 1/2in Circle, Holiday Ornaments Framelits, I{heart} Hearts (ret)
