Bee Valentine Card

This card is for my baby who is 18 months old now :)  The adorable cheeks on the bee made me think of him!  I used the My Valentine SVG files from SVG Attic to make it.  It has quite a non-traditional color scheme for a Valentine card since I used Authentique's Be(you)tiful collection, but I love it!
 I inked all the edges with brown chalk, used glossy accents on the heats and tan sequins on the wings.  Finally I added a tiny twine bow to the sentiment.
It is hard to see in the pictures, but I used a hexagon embossing folder on the striped background paper to resemble honeycomb.  The bee and sentiment is all popped up using foam tape.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
