Hap-"Bee" Birthday with Honeybee Tilda

Happy Tuesday to you, dearest readers,

How are you today? Did you have a good weekend? Have you been busy creating wonderful things? I've just been working at creating cards so that I don't get behind! I'm slow and time keeps moving forward!

A new challenge begins today at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog! Today, our new challenge is -

Happy Birthday!

I had so much fun with this challenge because I got to play with my new Doohickey Club bee themed dies!

Here are a couple of fun facts. Each of the 50 states in the USA has a nickname. Nevada, for example, is the Silver State because of all of the silver mined there. I live in Utah, and it is the BEEHIVE STATE! Utah got this nickname, and uses the beehive as a state symbol, because early pioneers used the beehive to represent hard work, perseverance, and industriousness. The pioneers saw the example of a beehive, in which all of the workers cooperated in the construction of something much bigger than themselves, as a model for a properly run society. So, now you know why Utah is the Beehive State!

Want to see my "honey" of a card? Well, here it is:

The honeybee paper is from my scrapbooking days. I just always thought it was too cute! I used Doohickey Dies from Kit #10. I used the honeycomb hexagons, bee, as well as the beehive. The bees' wings were cut from vellum and covered with a delicate layer of Wink of Stella to give them sparkle. The stamps are Honeybee Tilda and the Honey jar. A touch of black lace, some fun flowers, and machine stitching complete the front panel.

Here is a photo of the Magnolia Flower Beehive (available HERE) which I used on the interior. Here is a closeup of the hive I used on the interior:

The Magnolia Flower Beehive is from the 2009 Chasing Butterflies Collection in case you were curious.
