Birthday Card ~ Bee-ing Together

I have been adding to my birthday card supply lately.
I tried a new to me technique to create my three tone background.
First I inked up my embossing folder with blue ink.
After embossing my card front I inked up the 
flowers by rubbing my ink pad over them.
To get my third color I simply left the rest white.
This sweet little bee family is going on a little outing.

*Large bees from the Hello Sunshine stamp set from Lawn Fawn.
*Large bees cut using the Hello Sunshine die set from Lawn Fawn.
*Small bees from the Let's Play stamp set from Lawn Fawn.
*Sentiments cut using the Happy Birthday Border die set from Lawn Fawn.
*Embossed using the Large folder from Darice.
*Y13 marker from Copic.
*Memento Grape Jelly, Bahama Blue, and Tuxedo Black stamp pads from Tsukineko.

May your day always be filled with love.
