Mo's Challenge #234

Things With Wings!

Anja is our hostess for Mo's Challenge this time, and she's requested that we use an image with wings. Mo has so many wonderful fairies that this will be an easy one!

This little bee is adorable and so much fun to color! I used the 'Out of the Box' technique on this card. I just love the effect of having some of the image outside the frame. The ruffle was made with double ruffled gingham ribbon. I stuck a piece of tacky tape down the center of the back of the ribbon, then cut it down the middle to get this thin ruffle. Just remove the backing on the tape and adhere it along the back edge of the circle. I colored the little flowers with the same Copic marker I used on the flower he's holding.
