Flowers and a Bee

I'm back to the new blogger. Hopefully it will work again.  Anyway, I again was back on Pinterest just looking around for inspiration and found a cool card that caught my eye.  I've done similar cards but not quite like this.

I have a special person in mind who will get this card for her birthday mid July. I think she'll  really like it.

Here it is closed. Pretty and cool!

And here it's kinda open so you can see that the card front is open under the bee!  The hive is actually stamped inside the card! I used Fun Stampers Journey's Hey Honey red rubber stamp set for the bee and hive.

Here you can see how I made the card.  I cut out 1 3/4" and used that panel to attach the bottom piece to make it part of the card front. The Happy Birthday came from FSJ's Inside & Out stamp set.

I used 2 different die set for the flowers.  The 2 big ones were made using FSJ's Bloom Creator die set and the little ones used Spellbinders' Fall Flora (Die of the Month - Oct. 2019).  The dots were from my stash. The card is flat as I didn't use any foam squares! The dot will add enough to require extra postage to mail this card!  I used lots of scraps to make the flowers. And the print paper is also a piece of scrap from my stash.

I colored the bee and hive using FSJ's Color Burst pencils and added some Journey Glaze to the wings for a glassy look. I see I didn't do anything with the eyes.  What would you suggest?
