A Thank You card using my prize from the lovely Holley

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How has your week been? Have you changed anything you are doing? Next week is half term I wonder how many people will rush to the beach if the weather is nice. Only time will tell. For us we will be staying home and looking after our daughter and son-in-laws pet rabbits. How they got here is another story.

This is a little card I made to say thank you to Holley for the lovely prize that I won in her month of celebration back in February. In case you are wondering I won the bee die.

This card went all the way to America to say thank you. Tomorrow it will be featured on Holley's Blog. Where I will be the Guest Designer. Here is a bit of a confession. I used up lots of bits from my craft desk to make this card. The backing paper was used in another project. 

The cornflowers were left over from the box card I made for my cousin back in April. I used the Star Flower leaves dies and the Ivy Spray dies from the John Next Door range to make the foliage. 

This sentiment comes with another die set. 

So here is the die set I won. The great thing about this one is that there are two dies so it is easy to cut a layer to go under the black outline of the bee. I used Promarkers to colour the body. 

Holly really liked her card and asked if she could feature it on her blog. Of course I said that was okay. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Stay safe and take care.
