Just a note

Happy Friday!!  It's time for another challenge from Jo's Scrap Shack.  As always, we are now an Anything Goes challenge and our sponsor for the week is Digital Delights by Louby Loo. 

As always, it is an anything goes challenge, BUT this week we have an optional twist if you want to challenge yourself a little bit.  The twist is to use this sketch:

The design team was given this adorable (and sweet) little bee image to work with:
This image would be absolutely perfect for a school related card: teacher thank you, happy first day of school, or just a little thinking of you at school.  But, I am a homeschool mom, so I don't need any of those type of cards.  So, I thought it would also make the perfect "just a note" card as the bee is holding a pencil; maybe he just finished writing a little note.  For the flowers, I stamped them on the same paper as the background of the card and then added shading  with a Spectrum Noir marker.  For the largest flower, I stamped it twice, cut out just the center of one and adhered it to the center of the other with a bit of cardboard to give some dimension.  Then I stamped the leaf image twice, leaving one whole (the long one rising out of the top of the large flower) and cut the second one apart to add around the other flowers.  To finish everything off, I added liquid pearls to the stamens of the flowers and colored the bees wings with wink of stella for a nice sparkly finish.  It can see all the fabulous sparkle in the photo below: 
I forgot to take a picture of it, but inside, I stamped the sentiment "Feel Better Soon" so the completely sentiment reads "A note to say . . . feel better soon."
I hope you will get a chance to play along with us this week, and I would LOVE for you to tackle our sketch!

Hi Heather, this is a really lovely card, and you can always use a quick note card rather than writing a long letter. Love what you did with the flowers they look great.Thanks for sharing over at Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge and good luck.
