There's A Bee On Your Nose

Today has been my play day.  It is Mother's Day here in the US and my DH  has let me play all day.  I wanted to color just for fun, so I picked one of my Sassy Cheryls' images and colored away.  Don't you just love the fun colors I used on "There's a Bee On Your Nose"?  I have used the image several times and it is one of my fave's.  I colored it up with Copics, cut it in a square then reverse rounded my corners with a SU punch. The butterflies are a Beautiful Wings, SU Embosslit.  The flower is cut from a Tim Holtz die and layered, glittered, wrinkled up and attached with a brad. It look so much better IRL, but the camera doesn't pick up the sparkle on all the petals. The marvelous papers are Kaiser Craft that I purchased at Aww Shucks, my LSS.  Finished with a bit of orange polka dot ribbon from my stash.

The challenge this week at SC calls for stitching.  I had to opt for faux because my sewing machine is still not fixed.  I grabbed a Copic multi-liner and my ruler and stitched it right up. I used a black pen, but now that I look at it, I wished I had chosen one of the colors in the card.
