Bee-lated Birthday Card

Made this Bee-lated Birthday Card using a wonderful new stamp set that a friend gave me bee-cause she knows how much I like Bees.

Used a sketch which you can see below.

Used vellum which I like a lot on the Bee's wings. Heat embosssed the sentiment. Was nervous I would mess up on heat embossing the sentiment so I cut a separate piece of Kraft cardstock to emboss the sentiment on and then inserted at top right corner. Like the way you cannot tell that it is a separate piece over the Kraft base. Added stickles. Added a wobble to back of Bee.

Supplies List

adhesive: glue dots, Scotch ATG
embossing: Stampendous Black Detail emb powder
ink:  Versamark
machine: Sizzix
marker: black Sharpie
paper:  vellum   cardstock - yellow, Echo Park Country Drive, Kraft
Spellbinder: die - Nest Hexagon - to cut out Bee
stamp:  Reverse Confetti The Buzz - sentiment, Bee
stickles: mustard seed - on Bee's stripes
tool:  MISTI
wobble: added to back of Bee 

Entering this into the following challenges:

You don't have to use all of these colors, or only these colors, but please use at least 2!

colors used - top color which I'm seeing as a clear color so my use is the vellum,
