Thanks - Color Dare #279

Loving these bright colors.  Going through some of my stash found a few stencils but never think of using decided to use one on this challenge for my background with no other thought in mind.  As always I like to use a sketch for my creations and decided to go with the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #250.  So this is my Design Team project for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #279

The background was sponged with Canary Ink using a stencil and then added the heart and twine die cuts.  The sentiment and one of the bees were stamped and then cut with a coordinating die.  Cut a second bee die and used the backside to draw in the bee similar to the other so that I could replace the bow with some similarity of the sketch.  

Please stop by and view the DT's inspiration for this challenge and would love to see what bright and cheery projects you will create.  This Challenge will be open for (2) weeks...AND you still have time to enter in our #278 color challenge of Bashful, Kraft and Gold Click Here.    

At Atlantic Hearts Sketch #250 marks the 10th term for the Design Teams and to celebrate the Top 3 will be awarded with prizes.

  3. Love those adorable little bees... they sit so perfectly underneath the heart. The stencilling is awesome and I have to comment also from the AH perspective - the elements all work together with the sketch perfectly. Such a sweet spring-like card.

  4. Very cute card. Love the background. Thanks for joining the sponging challenge at TSOT.
