Birthday Card ~ Sweetie Bee {1st Post}

I combined this cute bee with the sweet cupcake 
using the masking technique where they overlapped.
Next I colored them up then brushed on some sparkly glitter.
I overlapped three scalloped heart borders then
used the negative cut hearts for decoration.
To finish up I added the sentiment on a die cut heart.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Cupcake from the Carpe Cupcake stamp set from Verve Stamps.
*Bee from the Lil Bit Buggie stamp set from Craftin Desert Divas.
*Sentiment from the Big Wish stamp set from Verve Stamps.
*Large heart cut using the Wavy Hearts Die Set from Verve Stamps.
*Heart trim cut using the Scalloped Trim Trio Die Set from Verve Stamps.
*Small hearts cut using the Scalloped Trim Trio Die Set from Verve Stamps.
*E13, R83 and YG06 markers from Copic.
*Glitter added using the clear Wink of Stella brush from Zig Memory Systems.
*Rich Cocoa and Tuxedo Black stamp pads from Memento.

May your day always be filled with love.
