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 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!
