Are we bee-ing friends?

I was browsing through my stash earlier today, searching for a yummy patterned paper that would have some yellow. And there it was, buried under the pile of stuff, I almost forgot that I've got it :)
Yellow was necessary if I wanted to take part in Crafty Creations' delicious challenge 28 (obviously I did want to, lol)
So, I made this card:


The middle part is a blue vellum "window", so the stamping is visible from inside of the card. Not that it makes up for any nifty effect, 'cause the sentiment is upside down as seen from there :P
In the end I was not quite satisfied with the result that I have achieved (the card is ok, but it was easy and quick to make, so I felt like I haven't got enough of yellow yet...)
So, I searched for some more papers and made another card :D


Ever since I've seen the fabulous Bee Happy stamp collection from Stampendous, the colour yellow inevitably brings to my mind these waaay cute bees. I just had to draw them again!
Because I gave the theme from Crafty Creations a second go, I decided that I merged it with some other challenge. I chose to use this sketch from 365 Cards.
I altered it a bit though, as I added the drawing in the middle.
Now, it makes me happy that my previous entry for the Art Glitter Week is still eligible for the drawing, in spite of lacking of glitter, yet this time I didn't forget to add some :)
It's not too visible though - only the little bees' wings are sparkling. Besides, why oh why is it always so hard to photograph glittery stuff? *sigh*
Anyway, hope you enjoyed my cards!

Thanks for visiting,
Chupa xx
