Buzzzz...Buzzzz...I'm Thinking of You

Hello Crafty Friends,
 
Welcome back for another Whimsical Wednesday.
Today's challenge is to create a shaped card...any shape, but not a square. First, I was going to create a circular card, but I didn't want it to roll away. Yes, believe it not I have made cards that roll! So...I decided to make a pentagon shape card...a 5 sided polygon (We will be working on Geometry next week.).
 
Here is my Design Team project...
The Campin' Critters Cricut cartridge has quite a few bases you can choose from. Just use the sign feature.
I have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to use this embossing folder I special ordered. It is by Tim Holtz and it was in a two pack with a bubble wrap design.
 I added brown glitter glue to his bodice and antennae.
  Here is a sample of the sign feature.
Materials:
American Crafts paper
blue, brown, and white card stock
Campin' Critters Cricut cartridge ~ base (p. 40) cut at 4 1/2"
Give a Hoot Cricut cartridge ~ bee (p 37) cut at 2"
Tim Holtz (Sizzix) hexagon embossing folder
brown glitter glue
brown ribbon
brown pearls
wiggly eyes
Whimsical Designs stamp ~ Everyday Sentiments
 Vintage Photo ink by Tim Holtz
 
This week's sponsor...
4 digi stamps

Stay Creative,
Georgiana
