Thrilled to be the Guest Designer, Just Bee-Cause

I was absolutely delighted when Jenny Gropp of Our Creative Corner asked if I'd like to be guest designer for this week's sketch challenge. Thank you so much, Jenny, for this opportunity. I had so much fun.

Decisions, decisions with this sketch. I was really in the mood to color a new bee stamp I picked up earlier this summer from Stamps Happen. The problem was, the stamp had three bees on it, and I needed to fit the image in the oval. I then remembered my recent purchase of a Memento ink marker, which allowed me to directly ink one of the three bees with the marker, and stamped the one bee into the Neenah Solar crest oval shape cut from Nestabilities.. Problem-solved. Cropping, if you will.

I then proceeded to color this adorable little bee with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils. Patterned paper, colored cardstock, brads on the bee's antennae, computer-generated sentiment, and some flower embellishments were also used to complete this card.

I had possession of this card for about three or four hours, and then needed to use it. I'm thinking I'll be making some more "Just Bee-cause" cards, bee-cause you never know when you might need an all-purpose card.

Thanks for the great sketch challenge. I can't wait to see what everyone else creates!

I love this card, can you tell me if you have done the wording on a computer, if so what font have you used or is it a stamp? Really stunning Hugs Julie x
