Bee Mine, Valentine

Once again, Pinterest strikes!  I'm not sure who pinned the inspiration for this card (a bee and "mine" on a pink background), but when I saw it I immediately thought of my new A Buzz stamp set.  Since our older DD loves pink, I knew this Valentine idea would be a card just for her!
I used both the new For Always and Chantilly paper packs for this square card.  After stamping the bee image in black, I colored in the bee with a sponge dauber & Blush ink.  The "mine" banner is stamped in Cranberry on Cotton Candy cardstock with a strip from Chantilly to make it all match.  (The banner is covering up the sentiment of the original image.)  Since it's for my DD, I had to add a little pink Glitter Glitz Gel to that pretty bee.  I also used our new Pink glitter gems too.

I'm linking this card up to the Heart 2 Heart Love challenge , the Pink Elephant "Love is in the Air" challenge, and the Color My Heart Color Dare #29, Cranberry & Blush.  Happy Valentine's!

Great card. All your embellishments are just enough without being too much. I think I may adapt this with my retired Country Life set. Thanks for the inspiration!

Oh, I do like that! I already have my eye on that stamp set. Wish I could have been a little more inspired for V Day cards, but I got 4 done (3 children and my dad) so we will just call them "D for Done" and not worry about it!
