Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #22

Hi Stamping Friends!!  I finally had a chance at lunch time to get a card done for the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge.  Nothing like waiting until the last minute!!  I was busy as a bee these past few weeks with some dental emergencies with my 5yo DS.  He ended up having seven, yes 7!! teeth pulled.  Three because they were infected and four because there is not enough room in his mouth for the HUGE permanent teeth that are getting ready to come in.  And that's why I have to squeeze my stamping time into my lunch hour!! (That's also why I got some chocolate on my card and had to do a little extra Photoshopping to remove it!)

But I didn't want this adorable challenge to buzz right by.  :)  Aren't all those little bumble bees too cute!  Too bad I didn't have any bee stamps.  Kinda makes it even more challenging. 


I'm not usually great with the CAS style.  I always make things too complicated.  But with this fabulous sketch from the Clean and Simple blog, all the hard work is done for me!  The card base is Whisper White layered with a piece of Play Date DSP.  The Chocolate Chip scallop was made using my Tasteful Trim die.  LOVE that die!!  It's a must-have.  Another item from the Holiday Mini Catalog that I used is the Decorative Label punch.  I finally have a punch big enough for my Smarty Pants phrases!!  The flower was made with the Daisies #2 die and the button is from the Neutrals button pack.  I finished it off with a piece of hemp twine.  Perfect card to finish in about 15 minutes!!  Plus this card fits the Pals Paper Arts challenge to use buttons!

I hope you can join us at the SCIC.  We are always looking for new stampers to help us celebrate!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
