Bee & Flower Easel Card

I created this card based on a sketch over at YNS.  
I decided to make it into an easel card after I finished the complete front.
I have been on a mission lately to use up some of my scraps so that is what I did for this card I went through my scrap boxes and found some papers that I thought looked good together.   I used one of my stitched flag banner dies for the pink Layer that I trimmed down to 5 inches long.   I used a stitched scallop oval die for the center mat and I made a shadow layer for it in black with my SNC2.
The Bee is an adorable SVG file from Cheryl over at   I used some yellow shimmer chalk on the middle section of the bee to help accentuate his curved body lines.  I used a mini punch for the tulip the Bee is holding, I cut it twice once in green and once in pink and trimmed off the stem and layered the pink tulip on.  I punched one more tulip flower in red  and trimmed away everything but the leaf area to make the mouth for the bee.   From some of the same card stock that I used for the first card base layer I  stamped the word hello from a crafters companion Hexagon coordinating stamp set which I then cut out with a stitched ticket die and popped up on foam squares.
On the inside I cut another stitched mat  from the same ticket die set in a larger size this time after stamping like the flower & bee great friends are we  from desert Craftin divas - Lil Bit Buggie Stamp Set.  I then added some bling below the sentiment, One pink flower shaped rhinestone and too mini pink rhinestones to go on either side of the flower.   I popped that label up as well on foam tape to act as the holder for the Easel card.
I cut a yellow Mat with a pierced rectangle die so that I may add a written sentiment later on the inside.
