Happy BEE Day Birthday Box

Made this using a Cricut cartridge, All Occasion Box Cards, by Lori Whitlock I recently bought a digital copy of. If you have this cartridge, not sure if this happens only for digital copy or not, make sure you have the sizing template on Lori's site because when you insert using online Design Space it does not size it properly.

I changed it up by using my own stamped sentiment to make it for a Birthday. Added wiggle eyes to the Bees & glitter to the Bee's wings.
