OSAAT # 244 Anything Goes ....... With Four Legged Friends

Good day to you and thanks for dropping by. Hope you are all well.

 I think my card today stretches the boundaries a bit since it is not the four legged friend that you can actually walk on a lead ... lol!  But some people love bees  - and we really need to save the bees!  As you can see this is the challenge for One Stitch At A Time.  I am using Bumblebrella from Stitchy Stamps which you can find here.

My Card

6" easel card base - cream cardstock from Rymans
Backing papers - ancient magazine freebies 
Large daisy - Britannia rose die
Oval dies - JustRite Vintage Labels 4
Smaller daisies and leaves - Woodware punches
Promarkers to colour
Pearls - Hobby House

I was having a clear out about six weeks ago and these papers were about to become a casualty but at the last minute I changed my mind.  As soon as I saw the Bumblebrella image I knew these were the perfect addition. The Bees Knees sentiment was also part of the set and I just cut it down and then used the JustRite dies to cut the striped and the cream matting layers.  I fussy cut the butterfly and the two bees from the papers.  Some Flax glitter for the bees wings and daisy flower centres and job done.

We would love to join us in the challenge and this is the prize you could win.

Take care.

A gorgeous card Christine, love the papers and design. Glad you found a use for these beautiful papers, would have been a shame to get rid of them. Perhaps that's why my room is getting a bit overcrowded, I tend to hoard too many things, lol.
