Don't You Just Hate When

  1. The photo doesn't do justice to the actual card.  Lately my photos are just not showing off the cards. 
  2. Let me point out some of the things you can't see.
  3. The wings on the bee and the bear have been covered with a glaze pen and they have a neat shimmer.  There are glossy beige pearls on the scalloped border.  The beehive charm and button are hanging attached to a card stock tab.  There are yellow stickles on the yellow stripes.  The polka dotted square and the image are popped up with dimensionals. 

Here's the deets:

Oh, did the inside, just don't have a photo.  I used the open scallop die-namic to cut the tan paper and used one border at the top and one at the bottom.
