Bee Mine

Within the past month, I just got this cute little stamp set from YNS and I knew I had to use it for a Valentine's Day card.  It was tough choosing between the cute images, but I finally went with this adorable little bee.
 I wanted to make the wings shimmer, so I stamped a second image and cut out the wings only so I could used the rest of the image as a mask.  Then I spritzed over the mask with glimmer mist.  It's tough to catch it in the picture, but you can see the sparkle a bit.
Oooo . . . and I was even able to use a piece from my bits and pieces stash--that black arrow.  I thought it was a pretty cute addition.
