The Bees Flee

Greetings. Thank you for stopping by the Guild Hall. You may have noticed the abnormal migration of the love bees. They have been leaving the realm in droves, which is alarming considering the Festival of Love is fast approaching. It is surely another sign that the evil Black Soot-Ture’s plans have been put into action. The love bees are known for pollinating blossoming relationships during the Festival of Love. In their absence, these budding relationships may never flower, changing the course of history and disrupting the balance. 

This card was created for the Just Some Lines February Challenge that is happening now! Our theme this month is hearts and love. Come play along for a chance to win!

I started by printing out and colouring the Just Some Lines whimsy bee image (which was last month’s freebee <-- “bee”...see what I did there) using Prismacolor pencils. I used the Unity “Bee Happy Hexagon” set to stamp the polka dot hexagons in the background. The little “flight path” also came from that same set. I added some hearts using the Lawn Fawn “My Silly Valentine” set. The sentiment I created using the Lawn Fawn “Harold’s ABCs” set. 

Inside I stamped the sentiment using the My Silly Valentine set again and added some more hexagons.

The envelope was also stamped with some hexagons from the Unity set to make it match the front and earn me +77 hexy XP points. I’m sure it will assist in my dark magic spells...or...hexes.

Cute Card Thursday Challenge #306: Something New (Bee Happy Hexagons set is new)

Unfortunately our trek to the Frostback Mountains to see Scissor Arm was fruitless, as the temperature had already risen to such a height that he had melted, not being able to find shelter in time. We would have to find another way to fell the evil wizard, Black Soot-Ture, and save the Festival of Love.
