just bee-cause Card

Created this card with a Bee theme. Used small Hero Arts Bee stamp from Fun Stuff set LL330. 

Got whimsy with the sentiment using Hero Arts CL342 by 
1. cutting the stamp 
'just because' 
2. into 3 pieces 
'just b' 'e' 'cause'
3. and stamped
'just 'be'
4. took away the 'just b' and stamped
'e cause'
5. to make the sentiment
'just 'bee cause'

6. Added a hyphen and sentiment is
'just 'bee-cause'

  2. BUZZING lovely card! The bees came alive in this one! Lovely background!

  3. This card is so clever! I really love how you made the honeycomb pattern tie in with the bee theme. The "bee" cause made me smile and I really love the elegant bees. This card is one of my favorite creations of yours and I'm so glad that you shared it with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
