Just buzzin' by to say...

...have a HONEY of a day.  That's what it says on the inside of the card and I'll show you a pic of it at the end of this post.  First, about the front of the card...


It's a 4.25" square card and the layout is Deconstructed Sketch 54.  The set is from Flourishes and it's called "Bee My Honey."  I was lucky enough to win this set a while ago, but I think this is the first card I've made with it. I forgot how much I love to color Flourishes images.  They're easy and fun to color with all the shading marks right there in the image.  The sentiment on the front was stamped onto a die-cut (MFT's First Place Ribbon Award Die-namics) and popped up on foam tape. Papers are Summer Fresh by Simple Stories and I threaded some of the red DP through the yellow button.  The main matted image is up on foam tape (the kraft layer) and it's colored with 0, W1, W3, E31, E35, YR21 and YR24 Copics.  The base panel was sewn with a sewing machine and then run through the Cuttlebug with my Swiss Dots folder.

Okay, and as promised, here's the inside (it's been a LONG time since I've finished the inside of a card)...


The circle is from Spellbinders and the ribbons are MFT Die-namics.

Well, that's it for me. Thanks for stopping by and have a really great Monday.  :)

I am so far behind in my google reader I will never catch up LOL! This is so pretty...and there are those banners again. Thanks for sending me the info on them too, I so appreciate it! Your card is lovely. The inside too. I have a hard time motivating myself to finish the inside as well...I try to put at least a white square with a strip of coordinating paper just to tie it all in.
