Bee Well -- Sketch Challenge


Must admit that this card did not follow my usual process. I usually plan my card's colors once I pick the image. Tonight, when I saw Roxie's sketch on SCS (which can be found here), I made the entire card except the image....then I hunted one up that would work. Maybe in the back of my mind I really had these bee buzzing in my head as I had taken him out the other day and never used him. Maybe it was that inner buzz that selected him as the focal point for this card. Whatever, I must say I like the clean. crisp, bold look of this card.

I will try to make another in the morning before heading to the pool. My initial reaction to the sketch was skeptical, but it has grown on me!! Thanks, Rox!!
