A Puzzle and a Bee

I have a few cards to share today, for a few challenges that inspired me.

First up . . . a masculine card for Stamp Ink Paper.  I always go with bold or earthy colors on those cards.  For this one, I went completely earthy!

Such a simple card . . . but I love the end result.  

And of course that missing piece ends up on the inside of the card. 

Second up . . . an insect on a card.  I have to be honest, if the insect isn't cute and whimsical . . . it won't make it into my craft room (unless it's real, and that's  whole different situation). But these cute little bees made it easy to get crafty so I could participate in this week's CASology card challenge. 

 I used stamps, paper and supplies from The Stamps of Life to create this card.  And Stickles was my bestie for this one! 

I certainly hope you find some time to create today!
