Beate posted a challenge a few days ago to create a card based on her fun and edgy layout using scallops, punches and ribbon. And of course she used her flower bee. Those bees all the buzz so I just had to pick me up a few too (Bee Trio and Bee Daisy). I ordered them a few weeks ago from an south island stamp store and they arrived mid week. Since I have been feeling REALLY under the weather in the past few days, I needed a little pick me up with these beauties. They have been staring at me from my shelf and I can hardly believe I haven't felt well enough to use them up until now (and let me tell you my card was a 30 minute card...didn't feel well enough to stay any longer).
So back to the challenge...like most challenges, I try and follow the rules as best I can. I just got a little creative in adding some extras *lol* as well as flipping the card, so if this disqualifies me I am ok with that. I just wanted to share a Beate inspired design. She is after all one of my stamping heroes *wink*.

Thanks again for the inspiration Beate! I will certainly be looking for more of your challenges in the future.
Because I love to stamp and you do too!
P.S. You'll probably notice I posted this REALLY early but I will be heading to bed once I get the kids settled for the night.
