Bumble Bee

I have the day off today - woo-hoo! The school I teach in on Fridays, is closed, in order to celebrate the birthday of the woman who founded it...which seems a bit odd to me...surely it's something they should celebrate in school together???
Anyway, on to today's card...this one uses the sketch form Sketchy Colours...and the 'Wings' theme from Corrosive Challenges. The image is 'Bumble Bee' (by Sugar Nellie)...and I've watercoloured her to match the gorgeous 'Blush' paper by BasicGrey...this is my last piece...and I'm very sad to see it go! lol I did add a touch of sparkle to her wings, with a Sakura 'Stardust' pen, but it doesn't really show up in the photo. I embossed with my Cuttlebug 'D'Vine Swirls' and 'Victoria' folders on to white core card, then sanded it to reveal the core. The sentiment stamp is by Cuddly Buddly.

A lovely card Helen. You are braver than I am I don't seem able to use the last sheet of design paper.
