Bee My Valentine Bee Mine FMS628

Today I've a quick post to squeak in a card I made for this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge with a great layout chosen by Narelle:


I loved the way DT member Amy used the Stitched With Whimsy Dies to frame the aperture on her card this week and it inspired me to use them in the same way, but as a 'trail' for my buzzy bee - take a look:


A well-chosen pattern from the Be My Valentine designer series papers and the perfectly-sized sentiment complete my simple card.


Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

You have chosen the elements well. I like the raised up frame - very stylish! The wonky stitched dies work a treat - just like a bee that's exploring around. Nice design!

I just love these little bees and the whimsy frame makes a perfect little bee trail! The coordinating envelope flap gives such a finished look. Vicky x
