You BRIGHTEN my day!
I made this card for a friend of mine who was with me when I got this new Bee Happy stamp by Stampendous. It is a Stampendous Pail Topper. I think it is so cute. The two bees represent her and I. I do not usually use alot of bright colors (it is much brighter in person), so I had fun making this since I used colors I don't use much. I have also never done a tent topper card before and I really liked how it turned out. I got the idea from the SCS 134 Sketch Challenge. You can find the sketch directions at http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=271904. The other nice thing about the design of this card is that it fits in a standard size card envelope. The card itself measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. I had so much fun with this design that you will probably be seeing more of them. Especially for my next Christmas card post!
