The Un-BEE-lievable Challenge

and adding a creative BEE sentiment.
Let this BEE some inspiration for you to get your craft on and play along...

This is what the inside looks like:

About this card:
This card is a shaker card and was created using Get Inky! Stamps and Digital Images.
The papers are from Michael's Paper Stack Recollections, The Neapolitan Collection.
The scalloped heart was made using a Nestabilities Die in my Cuttlebug.
And the punched out heart for the shaker was made with a Cuttlebug Die.
Inside the shaker area are gemstones and silver confetti hearts.
I used acetate and double sided foam adhesive to seal the gems and confetti in.

This is a party, so there has to BEE prizes, right? Right!
BEE-cause I love crafting so much, I want to help YOU get your craft on!
