What's black&white with a splash of yellow?

Happy Friday!

I've been a rogue card-maker all week, not creating anything for any challenge... time to join in some fun!  I'm entering this card into the current PDCC - black and white, with a splash of mustard yellow.  (I have 2 splashes, hope that's ok!)

I'm slowly making my way through all of these CSS critters.  The bee is so cute!  I couldn't help but combine a few CSS stamps to make this "way to BEE!" card.

 I used some background sets, black distress ink, and a sponge to create these faux-washi strips.

The cute critter was cut 1x out of vellum, and 1x out of cardstock.  I purposefully cut off his wings on the cardstock layer, so that the vellum ones could take center-stage.

Thanks for popping by!

Supply list: 
Stamps used: (all CSS): taglines: critters, background basics 1, flower garden, au naturel (for the word bee), PTI: simple alphabet


  1. This card is so cute--and that's saying a lot because I normally avoid bees!

  2. So sweet! I remember when we used to use this expression!
    I love your clever layering on your bee!

  3. So fun! Love that faux washi. But especially love the bee in mustard. Nice change/tweak from the bright stuff often seen. The vellum is the perfect touch. You clever bee!

  4. This is soooo adorably sweet! Adore the way you layered the bee and love your faux washi strips!

  5. *So* cute... and I love the way you did the PDCC challenge!!!
