Spelling Bee Card

Hello all!  My 8 year-old son loves to spell and read.  His grade school recently had a spelling bee.  Each class had a bee and the one who won that went to the school spelling bee.  He was in the 1-3 grade group and he won 1st place!  We were so proud of him.  His winning word was "university" :)  Here is a card I made for him for his achievement!
The background is embossed with a hexagon folder and then I inked it with black ink.  The cute bee is from Miss Kate Cuttables.  I did a print and cut.  I wish the colors of the bee had been closer to the papers I used, but that is what you get with print and cut.  I added a fun bow of Midnight Trendy Twine below the bee.
The letters along the left I cut out three times each so they would have a thickness like chipboard.
When I gave this to my son he absolutely loved it!  In fact he told me this was the best thing I had done for him EVER...yeah.  Not so sure about that, but I guess that tells you how much he liked it LOL!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Hilighted at Miss Kate Cuttables!
