Bees in Foxglove!

Hello Everyone!  It's Power Poppy Friday and to make it even better, it's the release day for this month's Power Poppy Digi stamp which is...... Bees in Foxglove! The Bloom Brigade are joining the
Instant Gardeners this week and showcasing this beautiful release!

Our newest addition to the Instant Garden Collection just happens to be one that's a tall beauty that's not only colorful but a dramatic beauty. Our newest set, Bees in Foxglove, features three lush stalks of foxglove (Digitalis) with three plump bumblebees buzzing around doing their bumblebee thing! Add in a cheery all occasion sentiment and you have one stunning set that is ready to download, print, color and create with!

I started my card with a base of white cut with Radiant Rectangles and then used the largest die to cut another piece of white.  I then used the largest two dies to cut a piece of pink.  The next smallest die I've used to cut a piece of Maja Designs DP.  Around these I've attached a piece of white ribbon.  The Bees in Foxglove image and sentiment have been printed onto X-press It Blending Card.  I've coloured the image with Copics (RV000, RV32, RV34, G20, G21, G24, G28, E50, E51, E53, B0000, B000, W1, W3, W5, Y21, C5) and I've used some Clear Spica Pen on the bees' wings.  I've cut this out with Labels Four and popped it up on foam tape.  To finish I've added a white bow and cut the sentiment into a notched tag, giving it a bit of a wavy shape.

Oh, Kathy, this is gorgeous! I love the softness and feminine feel to your card. The colors you've used are so beautiful, and I love the fancy die cuts with the DP as background. And it's perfectly finished with a beautiful bow and your fishtail banner for the sentiment! Stunning card, sweet friend! Hugs!
