Bee Mine or I'll steal your Heart

I'm having so much fun with my new SA/Doodlefactory Valentine remix set!!  On my first card, I chose to make it one layer using Gina K's pure luxury 120 lb cardstock (and I was going to color with copics)  I just love this flying chubby bee, and chose to have him holding the small envelope in his hands and paired him with Violet in the set (both were fun to color).  Then, I drew in a grass line but didn't realize until later that I should have colored it in before I put the shamrock green flower soft down because now you can see my line!  oops.  I think the card is still cute and besides if it looks perfect, it won't look homemade!  HA.  I also put down some other flower soft flowers to finish it off. The Bee Mine sentiment is from All About Love. 

For my card featuring the sneaky heart thief, Banjo - I made a Swedish Collage card.  I gotta tell you, this type of card is FUN because it goes against all you think makes a clean, cohesive design on a card because you use a BOLD mix of patterned paper, chipboard & fun embellishments! This is my 2nd time making one (remember the SA Swedish Collage challenge a few months ago issued by Tracey?) I said the first time I made one I would do it again & I made good on that promise *wink*  These cards always make me smile - they're so cheerful.  The sentiment You Stole my Heart is in the Valentine's Sentiments.   Pin It
