Bee Day Card

I finally made the birthday card for my cousin's daughter. :) I made it quick tonight since the birthday party is tomorrow and I have a three hour drive to get there. I used the same layout on my card that I used for my two Halloween cards I made yesterday since I knew all the cut sizes and figured it would go quick. I also used Trick or Treat again.
The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4" and is folded at the top. The black cardstock is 1/8" smaller than the card base and the yellow polka dotted cardstock is 1/8" smaller than the black. I used Elegant Edges to cut the mat at 4." I embossed the white layer of the mat with a Tim Holtz Sizzix embossing folder called honeycomb. I used Trick or Treat for my little bee girl and cut her at 3 1/2." I flocked her hair, added glossy accents to her tongue, yellow Stickles to the antennae and stripes, and gave her pearls for eyes. I stamped a sentiment from Scrappy Moms Stamps on a white banner that I hand cut and used some pop-dots in the center to lift it up. I finished it off with some black pearls on the edges of the banner. Quick and easy!
