A {Queen} Bee for Mother's Day

...and here we have the Queen Bee in her natural habitat:  a lace, pearl and damask-filled card for Mother's Day. (oh, beg your pardon, that's my kind of habitat!)


Some retired Stampin' Up! patterned paper made short work of this card, which features a beautiful pairing of die cuts from Spellbinders' Laurel and Bee.  I added some pearls to the bee, and a sentiment from Pink Paislee's Queen Bee (what else?!).


This card was fun to make, and I've already delivered it to Arts Plus Gallery.  Hope someone decides this is perfect for his/her own mother!

Thanks for buzzing by today.  :oD

colleen, this is awesome! There's something about papercrafting bees that is just so timeless and elegant...can't say that to the 'real bees'...I'm one of those girls that run the opposite direction screaming.

It's beautiful and I'm sure it will be snatched up immediately. What mother wouldn't love a card that says Queen on it? :-) I really like the blue and brown color combo.

The combo of vlue and brown is classic and striking. I love it:) The "wreath" goes so well with the damask nackground. Gorgeous! Hope all is well with you; still busy with work? Sending a BIG hug!
