"Hunny Bear"

This past weekend was a great one, crafting, crafting, crafting, and listening to GOOD music on which my awesome friend at work told me about.  Many of you may have heard of it and I'm so happy she told me about it.  Boy was I estatic!  There were soooooo many songs I pretty much forgot about and hearing them again was like being on Cloud 9.

So all that cool music got my mojo in gear.   I created this sweet card using one of my several Kitty Bee Designs images I recently bought at Ben Franklin Crafts.  To give this card some dimension, I applied bee brads by Eyelit Outlet over the bees on the image.   Also, tiny heart stickers by Sticko over the heart image.
It paid to dig thru my stash of "stuff" as I found a spool of pearls by Heritage Trimming which must be over 20 years old.   I  thought I'd never use it again but brought it "back to life" by gluing it to the border around the image.

Other fun ingredients for this card:
DP by Bo Bunny and scrap for pennants
Spellbinder dies
Flower punches on pennants by EK
Sentiment by Craft Lounge
Pearl trimming by Heritage Trimming
Flowers by Prima
Butterfly punch by Martha Stewart
Distress ink
Pearl adhesive by Kaiser Craft
Jewelry spacers

Here's close-up....

And a close-up of the pennants.  I used jewelry spacers between the flower and pearl for added dimension.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday - Challenge 264 - Butterfly Kisses
Delightful Challenges - Round Up
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Animal Antics
Papertake Weekly - BINGO (Glitter, die cut, and blooms).   I used Stickles on the bears wings for glitter.
Creative Inspiration - Challenge 209 - Anything Goes plus an option of hearts (I added hearts on the bear's antenna)

Thanks so much for visiting.   HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY!!!  Hugs!

I always find it fun to listen to music and craft. Does listening to music help make your MOJO flow faster? :) The Kitty Bee design stamp that you used is so cute. Love all the goodies that you used from your stash to make the card such a nice one.
