I made this valentine greeting using dies from CottageCutz.
I had originally started to make a typical yellow and black card using my new cute little Bumblebee Mini Die, but then I took a pink turn (which happens frequently since it's my favorite color) and made my card into a valentine instead.
The Scalloped Doily provided a fun background for my Prima pink flower. I sponged Pretty in Pink and Melon Mambo on the bees' wings for a little depth. A little Anastasia White Lace from Really Reasonable Ribbon added a sweet bow to match the doily.
I do enjoy watching real bees as they fly from flower to flower in the spring and summer. These bees are buzzin' around to wish you an early Happy Valentine's Day~!
