Bee happy

I got this image as an RAK recently and it's such a happy image I was really eager to use it. It was stamped on watercolor paper, which I don't usually use since I color with pencils, but it adds an interesting texture.
I used the current Mojo Monday sketch for this. Since there was already a sentiment on the image, I used the banner area for ribbon that has sunflowers on it. I tried doing one of those random loops of string I've seen on other cards, but I'm not sure I like it (or did it right).

This card is for these challenges:
Mojo Monday #409
Addicted to Stamps #156-- anything goes
Crafting for all Seasons #107-- Bright and Beautiful
Ribbon Girl -- must include ribbon
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge -- use patterned paper
Word Art Wednesday #195  -- anything goes
Clear it Out -- anything goes
V's Sweet Ideas #37 -- anything goes.

  4. That is such a pretty image and I love how you have showcased it, Sandy! Your coloring is divine! I like how you have placed your loops half-behind the panel, rather than all on top as I've seen others do it. I don't think there is a right or wrong way - it's all art, right?! Enjoy your day! Hugs, Darnell
