Card Concept 11 - Bee Happy!


Time for the next Card Concept challenge! This one's a colour challenge:


Black and yellow always makes me think of bees, so I pulled out my favourite bee stamp from Recollections. I stamped it in black on yellow and gave its wings some sparkle with Stickles. A very simple, graphic "Happy" completes this friendly message.

You may not believe this, but I made this card long before I realized that this week's CASology Cue Card is Bee! I'm also linking up there.


What do these colours inspire you to make? I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Our Rules
  1. Use the Challenge to create a card.
  2. Choose one of the design team "styles" to create your card. Click HERE for the different styles summary.
  3. Explain in your post which style you used.
  4. Link up your blog post here, not your whole blog.
  5. Comment on the card ahead of you and behind you in the linky. Everyone loves comments!

    This challenge will end on Monday, June 9 at 3pm EDT.

    You have successfully made me think that a bee could be cute. Funny coincidence of the challenges last week.
