Peachy Keen Background Card Challenge!

Whoo hoo! Another Peachy Keen Challenge this week!

This challenge is to make a card using their stamps to create your own background!

I used the bee's from "Funny Flowers" and stamped it on a piece of blue cardstock.
Then used a black gel pen to create the swirls around the bee's

Also the Bee's face stamp is from "PK-112 Cherub Faces". The bee was cut from a Silhouette file and put on a wobble, so when she "wobbles" she smells the flowers...LOL !

The pretty flowers are from Pro 31 Designs and the card base from Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. I also used some twine from the Twinery ~

So whatcha waiting for?? Create your entry and link it up at Peachy Keen !!!!
