#TGIF455 Bee My Valentine

Our latest challenge over at #TGIF455 is all about the sketch you can see in the graphic below. I got a tad bit carried away and kind of buried the sketch with hearts and flowers, but if you look close you can see how I was inspired by the layout.

I used a mix of Stampin' Up! products that include the Be My Valentine Bundle, the Sentimental Park Dies, and the Delightfully Eclectic DSP.  The card base is fully covered with the heart pattern paper. There are a few pink hearts scattered amongst all the white hearts in the paper. It's the pink hearts that steered me towards my color palette of Pretty Peacock, Lost Lagoon, Basic White, and Bubble Bath.

I cut down a long piece of Bubble Bath ribbon from the 3/8" Sheer Ribbon Combo Pack to tie a double loop bow. It's secured behind the bee to mimic the fluttering wings. I finished with Iridescent Gems and splatters of Wink of Stella.


  1. I love how you used alternative colors for the bee. Really great card, Elizabeth!

  2. Fantastic color combo on your awesome card!
