Challenge Me Monday at Fantabulous Cricut

Hi Everyone!!  I am so EXCITED to be the guest designer over at Fantabulous Cricut for the Challenge Me Monday challenge.  The challenge this week is Don't bug me.  Use a bug of some sort.  I created a card for a friend who LOVES bees.  Here is the card I created.

I am so sad that I forgot to take a picture of the inside of the card before I sent it out.  The inside says:

Hope your birthday is as sweet as honey!

I used Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut cartridge for the bee catcher and outfit.  I used tulle for the netting on her hat.  I LOVED how it turned out.  I also used my black pen for outlining the little grooves in the outfit and hat.
 The catchers net was cut using Everyday Paper Dolls.  I know bees are not caught with a net but it was the only thing I would think of.  The grass is cut from Martha Stewart All Occasion Cake cartridge.  I cut it 2 times from 2 different colors of green.
The little bees were cut from the Walk in my Garden Cricut cartridge.
 The clouds were also cut from Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge.  I inked them with outdoor blue from Close to my Heart.  And the Happy Birthday sentiment is also from Close to my Heart.
I am soooo happy with how this card turned out.
