Play it Again

Hi friends!  I'ts Monday again and time for a brand new Mojo Monday sketch.  This week's sketch is based on this card I made a while back.  I apologize if it's a repeat for you.  I had planned to make something new, but my littles got sick this weekend and well, with their asthma one minute it's sniffles and the next minute you're doing breathing treatments every four hours round the clock.  :(

So, no new stamping happened over the weekend and instead I'm sharing the card that inspired this week's sketch.  I started by stamping the bee from The Buzz in soft sky, then perfect plum, then wild wasabi on coordinating card stock and then cutting with the bee in The Buzz Die Set.  Next I stamped the sentiment in archival black on white card stock, then stenciled over it with the same inks first with the doily layering stencil and then with the gothic layering stencil.  I then placed two stitched circle dies together and taped them down so I could cut a circle frame and the inner circle.  I offset these a bit, then popped up the colorful bees around the edges.  I finished off with a white embossed layer using the chicken wire embossing folder.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have a wonderful start to your week.  If you haven't checked it out yet, our Anni-VERVE-sary sale is going strong with all stamps and dies 10 to 50% off, including 20% off our latest release!
