Happy Bee-Day to Me!

It's my birthday today...and I'm really looking forward to opening a pile of cards from my crafty buddies! ;0) But before I do, here's a card I made yesterday using the Sketch Saturday Challenge sketch and the 'Cute as a bug' theme of the Secret Crafter Challenge. I've used 'Bee Costume' (by Penny Black), as my image...I think this cat really is 'Cute as a bug'! lol The stripey paper is by Crate Paper, and I used the Cuttlebug 'Spots & Dots' folder on a piece of Core'dinations Whitewash card...although I wasn't concentrating and put it in the folder the wrong way up...so it's actually 'de-bossed'! lol The sentiment stamp is by Stampendous, the ribbon is from Poppicrafts, and the paper roses are from Hobbycraft.
