BBTB2 Bee Challenge QUEEN BEE!

Good evening
Over at BBTB2 this week the super talented Donna chose the challenge and it was to use the beautiful bee from the Sentimentals cartridge or any bee from any cartridge if you did't have the cart.
I don't have this cart........yet lol! so I cut open my Pooh and Friends cart (which I've had for a year still unopened!) as there is a cut little bee cut on there.
I went with an idea of a Queen Bee, this card could be for a birthday or Mothers day as what girl doesn't like to be treated like a Queen on her special day!
I designed the card using DS and 4 carts! thats a lot for me as I don't like hot swapping the carts too much, I know if I had a gypsy this would be so much easier but I like that the DS gives me a real size mat to build up my design on.
The carts I used:
The Bee   Pooh and Friends
Queen Bee text welded to bee hive is Cutting Up
Beehive welded to make a hive shaped card   Walk in my Garden
Crown is Sweet Treats.
For the papers which are all printed digis Margie!! All papers are Pink Petticoat except for the Yellow dotted paper which I thought looked like honeycomb and thats a paper from Kitsty Wiseman's CD Patty Picklicious. All black card is American Crafts and crown is silver mirricard.
The gems on her wings and googly eye are from my stash.
We would love to see your take on the challenge and you can join in with usover on the blog . My DT sisters have made the most fabulous BEE creations so pop over to BBTB2 and take a look and they also have a bloghop going on too with lots of candy to be had!
See you soon!
