I am very excited about the new range of stamps from Hooked on Craft! This gorgeous little fella is part of the just released Valentine's Day stamps, but I think he is not just for Valentines! I just love his sweet little face and cute little heart shaped antenna! He can be purchased here. I have coloured him with copic markers and added some glitter and stickles for glittery-goodness. I have shaded around my stamp with some grey chalk and I have also used a dash of glossy accents. The background paper I have used has sweet small little bees on it too! All the flowers (including the gorgeous yellow gardenia flower in the top corner) are also from Hooked on Craft. They now sell an awesome range of flowers, leaves and butterflies, and I (of course) had to buy a large amount of goodies!
Another new thing I have recently discovered is Spellbinders (when I say 'discovered' I really mean 'went on a spending spree for'...) and I have used some for the black background and the yellow glitter background too. The style is 'lacy squares'. I have found that Spellbinders have a lot of cool shapes to cut out that I can't do on the Cricut.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
- Kabboodles Doodles Challenge Blog; 'Black & White + 1'. I have used black, white and yellow!
- Let's Ink It Up!; Challenge #8 'Anything Goes'
- Sweet Sketch Wednesday; Just recently discovered this blog and I had fun with this week's sketch!

  15. This is the sweetest card - I adore it. That cute little bee seems to love his glittery wings and heart as much as I do and the wonderful sparkly paper behind him. I think he wants to just jump into that delicious flower because it's so beautiful! Thanks for sharing your creativity with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. We welcome you back next time too!
