I used the Bee theme for a birthday card today. Since I was at the desk made some extra cards as well. For strip across I went with the banner of tiny little bees. My big sticker bee was originally a very bright glaring yellow so out came the Copics to color tone that down to match the paper better.
On second cards I used the patterned paper of horizontal strips and cut it till patterned repeated itself. This piece of 6x6 paper only had one sunflower so I made it the main point of interest with the twine bow. Also when cutting the paper to fit I had to cut on each side of the paper to help the flower remain centered.
