Leaving the Hive

My oldest niece is now a high school graduate and is getting ready for her graduation party.  Her school mascot is the Bee.   I created this card using the Sentiments cartridge.   The beehive was cut at 3" and the bee at 2".   I used this honeycomb embossed paper that I picked up in a stack by Carson, at the Flower Factory.  SUPER CUTE and fitting for the theme!

The card is a 5x5 square.  The mat paper is from the DCWV Lemon Flower stack (her school colors are green and yellow).  I have some silver plastic glitter ribbon from Christmas that I used a Fiskars border punch on (although you can't see it that well in the picture).   I added these to the left and right side with thin strips of black ribbon.   I pop dotted the hive and then glued the body of the bee but, pop dotted the wings to make them pop off the card.  The stamp is from a Hamton Arts set.

On the inside, I printed the sentiment 'we heard you would bee leaving the hive.  Congratulations' and stamped some little bees from American Crafts set.  I used the same border punch on the yellow strips inside as well as the silver strips and black ribbon,
