Well, I finally finished my (tweaked) version of today's sketch. I had to change the oval to a rectangle to fit my sentiment, but otherwise, it's pretty much as the original sketch.
For my background, I stamped the square design on the diagonal then stamped the little candy corn bee, masking out the wings. I stamped him again for my vertical and horizontal bands. I colored these with markers and a water brush then used the smallest of the scallop borders dies down both sides.
I cut out an extra bee and attached him to the smallest lacy circle and added stickles. For the little candy corn embellie. I cut the shank off, glued it on and applied some stickles. The final card measures 4.25 x 5.5.
Thanks so much for looking! My blog:The Write Stuff. Sorry! I had to delete a bunch of really old posts from my blog & this is one of them.

Oh, Julie, this is DARLING!!! I love candy corn so I'm happy to see you affirm that it is indeed a recognized food group! : ) Love the cute "corn" bees and your coloring of them is fantastic! The black/white just sets them off.
