Anniversary Bee

 Hello and thank you for stopping by...

Well, summer has gone and the rain continues. Last week it was sweltering, far too hot to sit out and now it's  too wet and cold to be out... I'm just glad I have so many hobbies to keep me happy.

In a weeks time friends of ours will be celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversary and they've organized a garden party, sadly the weather forecast is not good but at least the card I made is summery...

I'll do my best to explain this one... 
I fussy cut some tiny flowers and butterflies from a piece of DP and then painted my own flower (top left) with the little bee to match the tiny ones...With me?
I knew I wanted to add some sort of shaker element

... And I wanted it soft and pretty.  I made it as one item and added it to the card - It's easier that way. I stuck down some of the fussy cut flowers and gems with the '50' and then added a few more shaker bits.
I'm really happy with the end result even though it took some time to come together. The congrats is cut from vellum that has little bits of gold on and there's a little drawn and painted gold vellum flower too.

I went on the make another little tag shaker to send to someone who needs a little cheering up right now.

And if you think I've finished with those bees, you are mistaken, I have made a few bee cards this past week... I bought a new plant a few months ago, a variety of salvia

The bees just LOVE it and I love incorporating them in my drawings

Before I let you get back to your coffee, can I just say a huge thank you to the team at CAS Mix Up for my win this month... It's always an honour especially when there are so many beautiful entries.

Have a lovely day, take care and be safe

Till soon
