Bee Mine

Here's my card for this week's Retro Sketches challenge.  I made a simple, sweet Valentine's Day card using Bee Mine, one of the new releases from Lawn Fawn, now available at i {heart} papers.

The set's bee image was stamped on a scrap of white cardstock and colored with Copic markers, then cut out.  I used dimensional dots to adhere the bee to a blue panel, then stamped the little dotted trail (love the heart shape!) behind it in gray ink.  The set's "bee mine" sentiment was stamped at the bottom of the panel in red ink

I adhered the panel to a piece of red chevron patterned paper that I'd die cut with a large label die.  The panels are wrapped with some red baker's twine and secured with a bow, then set on a golden yellow card base.
