Beehive Birthday

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! Isn't this greeting just the cutest ever? Perfect to go w/ these adorable little bees & beehive (which by the way continues the DRS Thursday Challenge..B Words!) They look so cute on my long as that's the only place I see them. I'm so allergic to insects, I have to carry an epipen! The only live bees I've seen so far are those big carpenter bees..they are like the cargo plane of bees. Those guys are HUGE! And they drill perfect little holes in everything & turn it into Swiss cheese. Woohoo! 

For my Beehive Birthday, after die cutting the layers, I stamped the branch w/ the beehive several times. Once on the honey colored card stock, the very end of it on the white layer & the hive on a separate little piece of white. I colored the branch on the two big pieces & the hive on the little one & fussy cut it. All the extra bees were also colored & fussy cut. The bee on the lower left is actually a reverse image so I wouldn't have him flying off the page. 
I added bee trails to the larger 2 bees & used a micron pen to add the dotty trails for the 2 smaller bees.  That little bitty bee is from the Bumblebee Recognition image. Here's a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a bee-utiful weekend & a Happy Easter!

This is darling! I love how you have the branch partly in and partly out of the honeycomb die cut!!! Love your little bees. Everything is so cute! I loved your card on Thursday too! How en-genius to have the octagons with designs on them and stacked. Love that!

Wow Julie, this card is over the top beautiful. I love the way the branch comes through the die cut. And as always your coloring is perfect.
