It's Wednesday...wooohooo that means I get to share a card with you for
This week I used the Bees Knees KD Kit. There is sooooo many fabulous digi's, sentiments and digi papers in this kit. It's a definite must have- especially with Spring just around the corner!
I used the sweet sunflower/bee grey & yellow honeycomb paper which I layered with a natural net ribbon. The CS is from American Crafts and Recollections.
I printed off 4 layers and used stickles (love how it curled the edges of my petals when wet) on the top layer and microbeads in the center. I just cut an extra center and put it face down on Sookwang tape and peeled off the backing and cover it with the beads. The texture was perfect with the beads...but can I just say how they end up everywhere!! They are fast lil' guys!! ;o)
Here's the inside of my card with a Hero Arts sentiment as it was for a special friend, which I embossed in grey EP from Recollections!
We are having some strange weather for B.C. this week!! Actually got snow...we never get snow in Victoria...I guess we are spoiled so the whole city gets chaotic when we do get hit with the white stuff. ;o)
Since our weekend was blinded with snow...our girl movie night was in jeopardy of not happening. So I thought a Treat Bag was a fantastic way to thank everyone for trekking through the snow to keep our girls night!
The CS is Foil CS from American Crafts and cut using labels twenty-five from Spellbinders. The leaves are a Memory Box Die, while the flowers and bling trim are from Recollections. Tag is from a Marvy Punch. Twine is from American Crafts.
I colored the sweet image with SN Markers.
Here's a closer look at the flower and trim.
The gals loved their bags almost as much as the treats in them!

I went with shades of aqua and pinks...as I'm awaiting Spring!! And these colors make me feel it's near. ;o) I used Spellbinders Circle dies and Marvy Circle (smaller circles) for the shape and layers.
I kept it pretty simple as I wanted the image to "Shout" out. hehehehe Love her!
