Sun, Sand and bees!

Couldn’t find the right sentiment for this card, so I hand-lettered it! Dug into my scrapbook stash to find the cloud background paper and the sweet little sandcastle embellishment. The only thing missing in this scene… is me!!

I am having so much fun CASEing cards in Poppy Power’s current challenge, “Copy a Bloomie” i.e. their design team members. It is hard to see the details in the photo, but I stamped the honeycomb by pouncing a golden yellow ink pad on bubble wrap and pressing it against glossy cardstock. My inspiration was provided by the talented Allison Kind! (Her card is provided below, too)
