Happy Birthday Bee card

Hello Crafters, I have a Birthday Bee card to share with you today.  I used lots of dies including one for that cute Bee. 
I did alter it a bit..... I cut it twice in black and hand trimmed the head off of one of them because I didn't want to use the face of the die.  So I ran the head portion thru my ScanNCut after trimming off the antennas too.  After saving onto my machine I then cut it out in yellow and used a Peachy Keen -  Cute and Cuddly face stamp.  I colored in the eyes with my white jellyroll pen.  I colored in the nose with a pink gel pen and the mouth with a light red gel pen.  Then I adhered the yellow head directly on top of the black head.  I also cut the yellow portions to place in the open areas of the body.  I used vellum for the wings and colored those in a light blue with my Spectrum Noir marker AB2.  I used Simon says stamp bundle of stitched shapes for the light purple background mat.  I then took my stitched buzz trail dies from Lawn Fawn and ran stitched trails all over that mat.  I used another stitched rectangle die to cut the yellow mat.  Using a honeycomb die in a lighter yellow to place on top of that stitched yellow rectangle, making a cute backdrop for the Bee.  I used crafters companion hexagon dies to layer up in the 2 purples for the sentiment.  I used my Cricut to write "Buzzin by to say…"  with a black .03 Cricut pen in a fontastic fonts - DJ Smooth.  Finally I cut a Happy Birthday die out of the same dark purple as the card base.  Using up plenty of scraps for this one, which I love to do!
For the inside I used my Cricut to write the sentiment with the same font and pen "Have a Bee-utiful day filled with love & joy!"  I cut this mat out with my Simon says stamp bundle of stitched shapes - stitched rectangle die.  I used 2 Bee images to stamp from the crafters companion hexagon dies coordinating stamp set.

I will be entering into these fun challenges: 
Thank you for stopping by to see what I'm up to in my craft room today.   Have a wonderful and crafty day!
