Bee Kind to a Friend

CCREW717INSPHere is my inspiration card for this month’s challenge.  In the image below, we were asked to use the photo for inspiration.  I found another really neat color combo that I wanted to use and decided to use the bees that are in the photo.  The color combo here is Night of Navy, Marina Mist and Crushed Curry.  I used the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp set and the Detailed Dragonfly thinlits to make this card.  Watercolor paper was used as was an aquapainter to color the watercolor paper in Marina Mist.

summerWhile I got this card layout from my upline, I did change it a bit.  The DSP used here is Naturally Eclectic as I thought the pattern went nicely with the dots stamp in the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set.  I also really liked the pop of color from the Glitter Enamel Dots.  I used a tiny piece of doily and a thread from the burlap ribbon just for fun accents on the card.  I really hope you like it!!  I am thinking about sending this card to a friend… but who?  Do you want it?? Comment below!  I will pick one person randomly!
