Good Morning All…
Hot sunny days of June and bad health issues have really made me lazy these days. Heartfelt has made me learn how to work in advance and I really love that. I made this card nearly 3 months back and painted these cute Bee images long back in winters. Finally, it’s time to share this pretty card. The colors are so cheerful and happy and the wobbling bee is just so Bee-autiful!!. The shaking elements and the painted honey jars and bees are adding an extra accent to the card. Here are few detailed pictures of the card.
