PPPR Spring Blog Hop

Hello everyone and happy Saturday to you!
I'm happy that you stopped by today, because you are just in time for the
Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Spring Blog Hop!

If you are following along the hop, you should have arrived here from my talented friend Barb's blog at BugBites.  If you are just popping in for a visit and would like to start at the beginning of the hop just head over to our talented designer, Lisa's blog at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.

For today's Spring Hop all of the designers created a spring-themed project using some of the darling files created by Lisa of Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons.  I decided to make a sweet spring-time card using this adorable bee from the "Honey Bees Cutting Files" .....
 (click on photo to enlarge)

* I started with a 5 X 5 inch white card base.  Next, I cut a layer of yellow cardstock and a layer of pretty patterned paper from K&Company.  I machine stitched around the 2 layers a couple of times, added some pink crinkle ribbon and adhered the layers to my card base.

*My pretty mat is created from the "Layered Labels1 Cutting Files".  The bottom layer is cut from the K&Company patterned paper and the top layer is cut from green cardstock. I ran the green layer through my Cuttlebug using the "Honeycomb" embossing folder.
* After assembling this darling little bee, I gave her wings and antenna a bit of glitter for some sparkle and shine!

* I didn't have a flower in the color I needed for this card, so I grabbed a white flower and gave it a spritz with my Copic Air Brush and a yellow marker - I LOVE my Air Brush!
* The fun sentiment is from Peachy Keen Stamps (PK-197). I hand cut my sentiment banner, stamped my sentiment and gave it a dash of glitter.

And there you go!  I hope you like my sweet little spring time card!  Before I let you hop away, I need to show you the goodies Lisa is so generously giving away for today's hop....
