The Queen Bee's Birthday

















Hello to you!  I have a tutorial today made for RRR!  I am also excited to share that I am staying on for another term with RRR!  I love working with Bonnie and the girls! So excited! Make sure to go check out the new additions to the team as well.   
                                           I decided to create an extra special birthday card along with a gussied up envelope.   It is always fun to make some one feel extra loved on their day. 
  I started with my card and stamped some French style bee images from Crafty Secrets Queen Bee set along the bottom of the card and envelope. I than colored some of my images in with a soft pink Tim Holtz distress marker.  From there it was time to pick some papers and adhere along with adding a few diecut borders.  I decided to add some Catherine white lace along the bottom half of card to soften it up a bit.  Once done with that I picked out some May arts fleur de lis  ribbon.  It is the center point of the card and I made sure when tying my knot that the fleur de lis were standing up right.  I tied my bow and than added another to the top.  I also added this ribbon to my envelope as a border and bow.  I used scor-tape for the fleur de lis border.  It adheres the ribbon well and allows for a nice smooth finish.  I of course HAD to add a bit of seam binding as well.  I added Baby pink seam binding that I crickled.  
It was time to add some bits and bobs...I topped the card off with a tag and a gorgeous Prima wood button.  The envelope had to have a little more as well so I added a metal key along with a  birthday tag and a pink lovely tag for fun.  Soft, feminine, and oh so French!  Hope you enjoy
