Would you believe I am working with that very same CB set this morning, one I've had for years. Such a sunny creation you have made with it Carol and the hints of dark blue on the panel really draw the eye.

I'm so drawn to bee cards and this is especially cute. It's always nice to use another spare part, too. Maybe it's the yellow and the warmth that appeals to me. Very nice, Carol.
