The Queen and A Bee-Bear Birthday!

Some fun news to share today -  I was chosen Queen for the Day over at Split Coast!!!  Which means that those who wish to play along choose a card from my SCS gallery to CASE.  It's so fun to see what cards people create based on cards you have made!  I am very honored to have been chosen.
I made this fun little birthday card based on the SCS sketch  this week- just a few rectangular shapes - not a lot of clutter - right up my alley!

I wanted to use this sweet little Rhubarb Bee - a digital image just released Wednesday by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps

I rummaged through my patterned papers and found these two bee themed sheets - the thin strip is a honeycomb pattern (can you see it?) and the larger panel is a bee pattern.

I colored Rhubarb to coordinate with the bee on the paper. I cut him out and popped him up on foam tape. I stamped Happy Birthday (from Sweet 'n Sassy Seeing Spots stamp set) directly on the honeycomb paper

I used the orange dew drops because I thought it looked like drops of honey!

isn't he just the most adorable bear??   Korin has designed lots of digital images of him for all the seasons of the year!

Hope to see you again tomorrow when I'll have my card for the Saturday Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge!

It's supposed to go up to 100 degrees here in Boston today -  I'm glad I'm at work with the central air!!

Stay cool today my dear friends!!
