So the fourth card in my series from a few sheets of My Mind's Eye paper and embellishments is a birthday card. I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #52 . . .
Here is my design. I again embossed my greeting in white, which adds a really nice touch. The inside has an embossed white birthday greeting.
I had a transparent photo mat with a border that I used for the wings of the bee. I love how those darn wings came out. I stamped the wings on the corner of the photo mat, so the stripes are vertical on each wing. There was also a pattern paper in this group that had hexagons, and I cut the musical note hexagon and popped it over the ribbon, and then popped the bee on to the hexagon to give some additional dimension. The "bee trail" is also embossed in white.
This was a fun card to make, and I just love that little bee.
