Cutesy meets classic

Happy Tuesday everyone!!! I hope you had a great day yesterday to start off the work week.

Mine was a little crazy since I had my boys back. If you remember my sister was kind enough to take the boys for most of the week. It helped with a doctor's appt. I had and plus my husband and I got to be a couple again. It was really nice. It just took a while to get back into the swing of being mommy again. My boys really are great and doing well. It amazes me how much it seems they grow in such a short amount of time. Both my boys seem to be speaking a little more clearly than they were when they left. Plus, they seem to behave just a tad bit better. Of course they did find every opportunity to fight over toys or just fight with each other. It is a sibling thing, not going to get over that one.

I know you all have your own woes and don't really care to hear about mine so I will get on with the card.

While the boys were gone I got to get into my scrap area quite a few times and were somewhat pleased with the outcome.

I had been wanting to ink up the cute bees from C.C. Designs set "Bear Hugs". The hard part is trying to think of a layout and idea to do with it. Then I saw my cuttlebug embossing folders. I pulled out my flower set and embossed the card base front (SU! kraft cardstock).

The yellow is PTI lemon tart and the PP is PTI as well. On the yellow cardstock I inked the edges with Palette brown and the PP was inked first with the brown and then sponged with PTI lemon tart. The flower is from PTI "Floral Frenzy" and was inked using PTI summer sunrise, the center is palette brown and the stem/leaf is Palette landscape.

The bee was colored using copic markers and then the wings were glittered up with diamond stickles.

I wanted to leave space for a sentiment when I chose to use this card. I always like to leave the card open like this so when I needed a card I can just add a sentiment real quick.

I am really pleased with the turnout of this card. I wasn't sure how well the classic flower and the whimsical bee were going to work together but I think it looks great. I hope you do too.

Have a great Tuesday and as always, thanks for stopping by!!!
