*Bee*pot Tuesday Challenge


This card is for today's Teapot Tuesday challenge (MMTPT59). My little bee was afraid his wing strength wouldn't get him all the way to California to meet up with the others, so he enlisted the help of this polka dotted balloon. I've told him that it is very important for a bee to work out regularly in order to have the necessary stamina for emergency situations such as these. He told me to buzz off as he floated away. I mean really, the nerve of some bees!
I used the out-of-the-box technique on the image (only I used a circle). I paper-pieced the bee's belly witht he same paper as the background. The center circle started out white, but I blinked once and this is what happened :) Seems to happen to me a lot when I get in the Copic zone...

Ingredients: Stamps: Stampendous {Happy Beeday}; Cardstock: Stampin' Up! {Basic Black, Whisper White}; DP: BoBunny, Accessories: Copics, Ribbon, Nesties, White Gel Pen.
