Bee Happy

Good morning to all of you.  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  Although it was still chilly, we had lots of sunshine so I do believe that spring may finally be on it's way!  And speaking of spring ... doesn't this card make you think of warmer weather?

We have a new inspiration post over on the La-La Land Crafts Blog.  Our inspiration this week is "fence it in" so of course we would like to see you use a fence on your creation!  I used this sweet Watercan Marci (with accessories) and colored her with copics.  Do you see the little bumblebees on the card?  Those little cuties are part of the stamp set too!  I used the Wrought Iron Fence Die  behind Marci and then added some pearls to the Scalloped Banner Die in the corner.  I used the Open Leaf Flourish Die and then added two flowers made with the Water Lily Flower Die.  The sentiment is also included with the stamp set.  I have to admit that I love this card.  It actually turned out exactly the way I had planned ... and that doesn't happen often lol!  Be sure to stop by the La-La Land Crafts Blog to see what the rest of this talented team has created this week. 
Here are the copics I used:
Skin - E21, E00, E000, R11, R20
Hair - E27, E23, E21, E00
Clothes & Boots - B37, B24, B41, Y18, Y13, Y000
Flower on Hat - Y38, Y18, Y15
Bees - Cy, C5, C3, Y18, Y13, Y000
Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a great week!
Hugs, Anita
