Don't worry, bee happy!

Happy Monday! It's time for a new I {heart}sketches challenge for From The Heart Stamps :)

Here's sketch #152...

The twist, should you wish to use it, is "Enlarge and crop the digi".

Join in the challenge, and EVERYONE who plays will receive a $1 discount code for the store, and if you are the challenge winner, you will receive a $5 discount code to the store! :)

Remember though, you must use an image by From The Heart Stamps to be eligible, and please include a pic of the sketch in your blog post too. It's in the rules! ;)

Here is my card...

As you will have noticed, I decided to rotate the sketch 90 degrees anti-clockwise, and make it fit into a square card. I also printed the image quite large and cropped it to focus on the Birdbrain and the bee.

This image is a "FreeBee", and is called Bee Happy Birdbrain. So go grab yours now ;)
You get 3 fun sentiments to go with it, one of which i've used here.
I coloured the image with promarkers.
The checked paper is by We R Memory Keepers (Travel Light), and the spotty piece is by My Mind's Eye (Stella and Rose, Hattie).
I wanted to expand on the bee theme a little, so I used some gold shimmery card and a CBS hexagon die. Then finished the card with flowers, using a Woodware daisy punch, ash leaf punch, and yellow flat-back pearls.

I'd like to enter this card at:
