"Bee" Day Invites

My cousin's daughter is turning two soon and I was once again asked to make the invites and decorations for her birthday party. This year the theme is "Bee" Day so I made a beehive shaped card for the invitation. I used Create a Critter for everything. The beehive is cut at 5." I cut out two of them, hiding the inner contours in Cricut Craft Room. I then glued the hearts at the top together to create a shaped card. I used a heart, also on Create a Critter, and cut it out so that it fit over the heart at the top of the beehive. I used some cotton candy glitter by Martha Stewart on the heart. The bee is cut at 3" also from Create a Critter. I used a Peachy Keen face on it because I thought it would be adorable...and it is! I also cut the bows from Create a Critter. I used Cricut Craft Room to get them sized right, then also used the cotton candy glitter on them. I used some dimond Stickles on the bee's wings. The sentiment is by Fiskars and I stamped that on the beehive with black ink. The party info will be on the inside. I made 46 of the invites and will be working on the rest of the party stuff now that the invites are done. I will post the decorations as I get them done. Enjoy!
I made these for the following challenges:
