Bee Happy - Paper Smooches

These buzzy little bees are a free digi stamp at Paper Smooches so I simply copied and resized them until I got a swarm of bees. The card was quick and I used different shades of yellow Copics to colour the little buzzers.  I added Glamour Dust on the wings, Glossy Accents for the eyes and the brads are from my stash.  The dotted lines were added with a Copic Multiliner and the ribbon is from a monthly packet I received from Really Reasonable Ribbon (those packets are so pretty that you almost don't want to open them).  
Challenges:
Two Sisters - Black, white and one other colour with the option of glitter (I used black, white & yellow plus glittered the wings)
Send a Smile 4 Kids - Anything goes for kids
Raise the Bar - Anything with Wings
Paper Crafting Journey - Use a Sentiment
Willows Sketchie - Things with Wings
