Flower & Bee Happy Day Card

I love the Hero Arts stamp and die combo sets and my friend Lesley made me such a lovely birthday card using the Garden Flowers set - which I didn't have.  On my last trip to the Glitter Pot I saw some very nice cards made with the set and now I do have that set in my collection!  The card I made is CASEd from one on display at the Glitter Pot.

I cut a panel of Pretty in Pink textured CS and attached it to the front of an A6 white card base.  I stamped the images on watercolour paper and coloured with inks and a water brush.  I die cut the flower and the bee - oh, that bee is just SO sweet, I love it!  I then cut 3 square panels from the watercolour paper and matted them onto Barely Banana textured CS squares.  I stamped the sentiment, added Dazzling Details glitter glue to the bee's wings, popped the flower and bee up and added a bow to the flower stem.

I stamped inside the card and on the envelope - I added sparkle to the wings on the envelope too, I just couldn't leave them unglittered!
