Playground Challenge #383

Despite being more or less 'confined to barracks' the weeks still seem to go by quickly and it is time for another challenge over at Pixie's Playground.  As usual there is a super prize on offer which this time the lovely Di has used on a doggy birthday card for their gorgeous Dudley who is two years old.

For my card I've used some snippets in black, yellow and white to stamp and die cut various bits and pieces and the largest snippet is from some papers which came free with a magazine a while ago and this is what inspired the rest of the card.  A stencil was used on a snippet of white card to make the border on the black banner.  There are some small gold mirri hexagons inserted randomly into the honeycomb but they don't seem to show up in the picture.  The wings of the bees were brushed a couple of times with clear Wink of Stella and sadly that doesn't show in the picture either.

  1. Love your BEE card Val...the backing paper matches perfectly


  2. I love this gorgeous card Val. I'm not really into bugs and insect in anyway but I have to admit to loving bees.

  3. "Bee-utiful" Val!

    The little beehive is so cute and I can see the gold hexagons on my computer! A great finishing touch.

    Thank you for all the information you gave me regarding my face mask making. Mum gave me some dried out baby wipes and I have been putting a layer of those inside - although I pass your candle test without any filter.

    You sound just like me Val. I am a real squirrel!

    Enjoy your day.

    Love Jules xx

  4. This is fabulous Val! I clicked on it and got all the lovely detail. Great work.
