I pulled out my SHINE BRIGHT stamp set, thinking it would be the perfect fit for the tall rectangular shape of the focal panel of the sketch.
I used the SUN 'N CLOUDS Confetti Cuts dies at the top to go along with the sentiment. I couldn't resist stamping, coloring and die-cutting the small bumblebee from THE BUZZ stamps and Confetti Cuts. I think I was in a "more is more" mood when I made this, as I even pulled out my sewing machine for a little extra pop.

SUSIE Q-TIP: My original plan for this card was to use only black, white, red and yellow. Well, when I started grabbing papers, etc., I realized it looked very Mickey Mouse. LOL! I happened to be talking to Jen during that process, and she said to add some aqua to the mix. Moral of the story: 1. Talk to your friends while crafting. 2. If a color scheme isn't quite right for whatever reason, just add one more color and see what happens.
