Hello Sweet Friend


It's time for a new challenge at Festive Friday where every challenge is an inspiration list based on a selected holiday/festivity from the traditional to the unusual. Challenge projects must include at least three items from the festivity inspiration list. Your project does not have to go with the challenge theme. You can just use 3 or more items from the inspo list for your creation.

Today's festivities are inspired by World Bee Day, which takes place on May 20th.
The challenge runs from May 13th - May 23rd.

I like to create a card for our challenge that goes with the theme. For this one, I purchased and printed the gorgeous image from Power Poppy's Sweet Simple Things Digital Stamp Set from Power Poppy on Neenah Solar White 80# paper and colored it with Copics. I framed it with Pinkfresh's Stitched Scalloped Rectangles, popped it up with fun foam and mounted it on a kraft card base. The sentiment is done with Glimmer Hot Foil System and a Glimmer Plate from Spellbinders Mini Everyday Sentiments.
I used flowers, bees, yellow, black and hive from the inspo list.

For more inspiration, be sure to visit the rest of the  Festive Friday Challenge Design team.
