Bee Mine -- Take 2

Hi, everyone.

This week's OWH Midweek Throwdown is to make a card using dry embossing. Just loved Carols' sample card.

As for my contribution... Sounded like another great opportunity to stamp some little bees.

Inside of Card

waterfall card
These three panels on the front, and the inside sentiment, make up the four panels on this waterfall card from the other day.

And, I don't usually include onside sentiments for OWH cards. But, these little bees really needed a little extra pizzazz on the inside. :)

I'm really liking the concept of the card, but am not so happy with the dimensions of the panels on the front. Think I may give this another try using two circles and an oval...

Parting Thoughts

Another short and sweet post. Still trying to recover from last week's festivities. And, gotta make some card bases for next week's craft show and e-mail a friend about a possible December Girl Get-Together.

Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!

Ideal embossing for this card. It's so darn cute and could be sent to child or adult. Nice job

looks like you've been a busy little bee :) I just love that tiny red heart on the first card - too cute!

I love those cute little bees! Taking the extra time to make a waterfall card is so nice if you. It certainly makes your cards unique!

Both cards are adorable, really love the water full concept. You're inspiration for me to try it! TFS!

Such cute little bees and they go just perfectly with the embossing folder. I love the scene of them finding each other, so sweet.

Great use of the honeycomb embossing folder with the bees.
