Just Because Card - Don't Worry Be Happy

Here is a super cute card that I made using this adorable bee from a Jolee's Sticker pack. Here is a tip for you...her wings come sticky and are meant to be stuck down flat, but I like them better curled up a bit and sticking out from the card, so I just sprinkled the back of the wings only with sparkly clear embossing powder, it sticks to it nicely since it is a sticker, then heat it up with the heat gun, it creates a shimmer and sparkle behind the wings, and it seals up the sticky part, and it also promotes them curling nicely. I am loving this method. For this card I just used one black mat, used my divine swirl cuttlebug folder at the bottom, some ribbon across and then I took my Startdust Pen and made the glittery polka dots at the top half and accented the swirls on the bottom half. Some simple ribbon and a button and there was the main design. Then I used my Lacey Square Nestabilities and made the fancy scalloped mat for the bee to be on. I accented with some black pearls and a sentiment from Emma. I love this sweet little card :). Hope you enjoy!
