Bee happy

Hello dear bloggers,

You know I really miss my old followers since the time I began blogging in 2010. I have come across such a lovely community of people here. So kind and so generous and so encouraging and so loving and so so so. It could go on and on. I am grateful for my friend, Aparna who suggested I start blogging when I lost my dad and I was facing some personal challenges. 

Back to this card - the bee has been hand drawn and coloured by Aleeza, who is 11 now. She made it on printer paper and I had to give it much backing to make it suitable for a card. But use I had to since the bee is so cute. I wrote a hand written sentiment some 10 times only to give the idea as a sentiment did not fit with the layout. I have popped the embossed background on foam top as well as the nestie with the bee. The washi tape on the left completes the card. I doubled it to make it look more striking.

The background here has been water coloured on water colour paper by me.

Down below is the same card on a black and white background - which one do you fancy?

I will enter this card in the following challenges: 

Happy card making,

Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this,
like you wrote the book in it or something. I
think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home
a little bit, but instead of that, this is great blog.
A great read. I'll definitely be back.
