Don't worry {bee} happy

Hello!  I've got a fun little card for you this afternoon using Taylor's fabulous TESC114.  If you've been following my blog the past couple of week, you know how much I absolutely {heart} The Thrift Shop paper by October Afternoon.  I'm thinking these little 8x8 October Afternoon pads are my new favorite "go to" paper packs!  Love the 8x8 size, especially for card making - it's the perfect size!  I stamped the bee hive from Garden Party Critters in Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored it with Copic markers.  To switch up the "don't worry bee happy" sentiment, I used a stamp positioner to line up "don't worry" over the hive and "bee happy" underneath - for an extra twist, I cut out the little bee image from the set and popped it up on foam tape on top of the word "bee".  So fun, don't you think?!

Thanks for swinging by today - see you back soon!

recipe - 
stamps: garden party critters
paper: not quite navy (su), island mist light (prism), choice buttercream cardstock, the thrift shop (october afternoon)
