Just Buzzin' By Flowers Card

Here is the last bee card I made using the "Just Buzzin' By" set. This card went home with Sharon last week. It was fun playing with her stamp set. Now I know how the gals feel when they come here to stamp using my new sets!!! It's a lot of fun!!
I had some fun Dotted Swiss decorative paper that I used for the background.

The center piece was dry embossed with the Dotted Swiss embossing folder.
What was really fun about this card was that after stamping the flowers I just used a square punch to punch them out. Gotta LOVE that. It makes doing the flowers SO much easier. And the scalloped layer behind it is a punch too! Talk about simple!!! I LOVE simple cards!
Now as I'm looking at this card and thinking that there is something wrong with it I finally saw it. It's the first flower. I didn't put it on straight. the stem should be at the bottom, not the side! Sharon, if you read this post remove that first flower and turn it so the stem is at the bottom. I must have been so excited to get it done that I didn't pay attention to that little detail!!
Now to explain further about the "easy" part. I just colored in the flower with a marker and then colored over a few areas of the flower with the same marker, it just made that area look darker. It was nice to be able to do that with just one marker and no blender pen! Simple, simple, simple!!!!
This just made a fun and bright and cheery birthday card. A versatile set for sure!!!
Thank you SO much for visiting today,
