Strawberry Lemonade and a Little Honey

At a crop this weekend I won a CTMH PaperPak and Stamp Set "CC1039 Taste of Summer Constant Campaign" and decided to use these for Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 #53, and use the Bery Bee Honey image from Bugaboo Digi Stamps.  

t the Crop I was introduced to The Outlawz Challenges ...which has a challenge each day of the week.  This will be my first entry for the Thursday Challenge "Anything Goes" with a Twist to add a charm.  I don't have any charms but since the twist is optional, I will enter without.  I'm still doing a lot of reading and traveling through this site, so why not start with what I feel is a special card for "Anything Goes."

Who doesn't like Strawberry Lemonade (especially at Red Robin, a favorite)...and then add a touch of Honey.  I added the Lemon, strawberry zip strip and Sentiment as my bow.  The Center circle is cut from Cricut Design Space, using Edge to Edge Cartridge (circle doily pattern overlay), which gives the affect of a big flower Bery Bee has got comfortable in...also like the affect that the pretty paper beneath peaks through.  Bery Bee was colored with a variety of ShinHan alcohol pens.  3D Thin Foam Tape was used to raise Bery Bee, the flower, Strawberries and Sentiment.  Finished off with a little Wink of Stella on the berries and Bery Bee's Wings.

My daughter and I were having a discussion on Bery Bee and she indicated that it was a Bear dressed up as a Bee...I wondered why the Bee had ears and legs.  So, the question was to use either "You're Berry Special" or somehow change the Berry "You're Beary Special" and my decision "You're Berry Special" just seemed to fit with the Lemon Sentiment and the Strawberry Zip Strip.

Please visit Sweet Sketch Wednesday and The Outlawz Design Teams inspiration for this challenge, and don't forget to stop by Bugaboo Digi Stamps to see the many fun images.
