Bee Happy

It is Monday and it is getting closer and closer to Spring so lets "Bee Happy" and play along with the challenge at Paper Playtime. I am so happy to be a new member of this fun challenge blog's Design Team.
For this card I started with my new favorite DCWV stack: Midnight Chic (black,white and gray patterns). I feel like it is becoming an obsession to use all the papers in this stack. I selected two and trimmed them with a black and white ribbon from my stash. 
Next, I had to find the bee I wanted to use. I selected the one off Sentimentals because I love the wings. I used another piece from Midnight Chic as the black layer on top of some gold and added a few stick on gems to the antennae. I also added the "Bee Happy" from the same cartridge.
I repeated my base layer on the inside and left room for a note. Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you will join in this fun challenge. Here are the details.
