Daisies and Bees

 Morning and I have been having a play with the Daisies and Bees dies from Hero Arts and made a slimline card.

The B,paper was from The Works and from the scrap deawer just had to trim half inch off to make it fit perfectly.

I coloured the Daisies and Bees with promarkers and forgot to put the glossy accents on the wings!!!

The coloured pieces were all ready smooshed die cut pieces from scrap drawer too-so all in all a pretty quick card -I also layered some of the flowers.

At first glance I thought you’d made an A2 and 2 squares, but looking closer I realize it’s a slimline design. And what a lovely design it is! These bees and flowers really appeal to me. A card that stands out from the crowd.

Oh my goodness, these cards are so beautiful! I especially love the background colors of the one on the left.

Mrs A. said...

I do like all the colours you have combined here and of course bees are very much in the news right now as they are on the decline. Certainly not in my garden as the lavender outside the back doors is filled with them from early morning till night time. Hugs Mrs A.
