Bee Careful This Labor Day Weekend

After traveling across six states in three days, I didn't know if I could sit any longer but wanted so much to get back to stamping and making cards and the virtual stamping party at Operation Write Home.  When I arrived home from the trip, there were new stamp sets in my mailbox.  I was really excited that one of the challenges at OWH was to use bees and bee sentiment because one of my new sets was a set from The Crafts Meow, Thanks Bee to Thee
I used Stampin Up Barely Banana, Chocolate Chip, and Really Rust card stock, corresponding inks and Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie, and Close to Cocoa inks.  It does not show up in the photo but I outlined the bee's wings with Sakura Clear Star ink.  Embossing folder is Cuttlebug. 

I used the MFT sketch:
 Bee back tomorrow with another card for the OWH virtual stamping weekend.
