Splitcoast Color Challenge #210

This week's color challenge on Splitcoast intrigued me, so I thought I would give it a try! The challenge is to use Kraft, Summer Sun and Riding Hood Red. I thought about using several different stamp sets before I settled on Just Buzzin' By.

I created a little window on the end of the card and made a frame using my circle punches and Scallop punch. I also used my Curly Label punch to create the notches on the ends of the sentiment panel. I cut the strip of Whisper White and inserted just the end of the strip into the punch to create the decorative end. I feel so clever! :)

This is what the inside looks like:

It's hard to see in the picutre, but I added a little bit of Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the bees' wings. It adds just a little sparkle, which is just what those bees need!

Have a fabulous day!
