Busy Bee Birthday Card...

This is my Busy Bee Birthday Card for my friend Miss Kitty.

She loves sunny days and yellow, the complete opposite of me. I love blue and grey and I love the wind.
What we have in common besides making each other laugh, is we love to make cards.

So since summer has ended and she loves the sun, I thought I would make her a Busy Bee Birthday Card to brighten up her day.
I am not usually a fan of yellow, but I found this freebie digital stamp on Meljen's Designs Website and it inspired me.

You can find it here:
It's called Honey Bee Buckets.
She has so many cute digital stamps, stop by and take a look. 

you can find her blog here:

To make this card I used:
Black, Tan  cardstock
Meljen's Digital Stamp - Honey Bee Buckets
Happy Birthday Stamp from Cardz TV Happy Days Stamp Set
Recollections Bold Basics Paperstack
 Tim Holtz Burlap Embossing Folder
Studio 112 Gems
Sentimentals Cricut Cartridge
Sakura Pens:
Gelly Roll -#XPGBM#49 Black
Souffle- X#920 (Pink)
Glaze- XPGB#803 (Yellow)
INC. Starlightz Pen- Silver
Rubber Stampede Ink - Butter Cream & Black
Martha Stewart Ribbon- Black and White Polka Dot

This is my Busy Bee Birthday Card:
 Simple but fun and really yellow...

 The inside... I used Meljen's digital stamp again for the tiny little bees buzzing around the bee hive.
They are so adorable... I just couldn't resist...

Here is a close up of the hive and Meljen's tiny bees...

This is a very cheery and a very yellow card. Hopefully it is sunny enough to brighten up Miss Kitty's Birthday.
