April 29-- Retiform by Pat

Let's get started !!

Here's my card for 
Whaaaat??? No butterflies? lol Bring on the BEES.
I sponged on some yellow and orange inks in the lower
left corner of the cardfront. Then I just stamped my image
and sentiment in black. I stamped the bees and colored
them and cut them out. I raised them up on the card using
mounting tape. For the "flying" bee I actually just cut off
his legs (he felt no pain) and added some flying dots
behind him. That was it. Thanks for stopping in and be
sure to visit all the other blogs listed below.

Stamps can be found in MFP Stamp Shop.
I used:

"Bring On The Sun"
"Spring Sayings"

Here's the Design Team
