Bee mine

This card is for the sketch on Sketch n stash 54:

It's also for Stampotique 24: Valentine or love - I've used one of their stamps: Jo Capper-Sandon's bee and coloured with copics. And, mentioning Stampotique, I was over the moon to visit their blog on Wednesday and discover that I'd won the $30 to spend in their online store for the previous challenge. I'll let you know when I've chosen what to spend it on (and there are so many gorgeous stamps to choose from).

I stuck to the yellow and black theme for Ann's creative nook 123: go stackers (which I have to confess doesn't mean much to me, but I realise that it involves black and yellow!).

The middle strip is a piece of Core'dination Black Magic card which is black with a yellow core, so I embossed with cuttlebug swiss dots folder (for CCEE 1106: embossing folders and Cutie stampers 94: embossing) and then sanded to reveal the yellow - it's a pity that a lot of this is covered up by the centre circle, but nevermind. The other papers are all Websters, including the one that was cut with the nestie to produce the circle with the circle border.

The circular sentiment was generated on Publisher and printed - I then cut the circle freehand to fit and added the image.

This is also for:
