Bee Happy

                             Happy Thursday High Hopes fans! 

My post today features Bumble Bear. How cute is he with his big flower and heart on his chest!

I decided to get in touch with my CAS (Clean and Simple) side with this card - a definite challenge for me! 


Sparkly Wings Close Up

I started by colouring my bear with alcohol markers, adding sparkle to his wings and fussy cutting him out. Next, I figured out the size my piece of white cardstock had to be and stamped a flower splatter with some pink ink to match. I created my sentiment on my computer and doodled the frame around the edge. CAS is a challenge for me but I am happy with how this one turned out.
