spotlight sunflowers

Well I messed this one up! 
It was supposed to be turned standing up...and all was going well...spotlighted my sunflowers so the top one would be off-center, had my leaves all going for the finishing touches!   and then it happened...DH came in to talk about his day, my day, and our nice quiet weekend (hopefully). When I went happily back to stampin, without even thinking, I turned the card and decided it needed "something", so I added my little bees....and thought..this doesn't look right...and then it hit me!  I had stamped those little bees with my card turned sideways....grrrrrrrr....oh well!   what's the sayin "too bad - soo sad" it is what it is...sigh.....card done.

This is for this week's sketch challenge at Stamp TV .

Stamps: GinaK's A Year of Flowers by Melanie, mini bee and leaf by Rubber Stamp Tapestry
Ink: Memento Black, Vivid Coffee Bean
Paper: SU's Hunter Green & saffron, plaid from stash
Embellishments: mini adhesive heads from GinaK, clear Copic glitter pen
Technique: masking, colored with Copics

Hope everyone has a quiet (or not ... if you are up for it) and safe weekend,
I'm hoping for a "stampin mania" Saturday, big smile here!!!

I am so glad I am not the only one who does that stuff! I never would have noticed the bees if you hadn't mentioned them! The card is beautiful even with the spacy bees!

Yes, great card no matter what! I love the spotlight technique and congrats on the design team assignment! They are fortunate to have you and you will showcase their stamps very well!

Love this card. Sunflowers are one of my favs along with daisies. I love the spotlight technqiue also. You did a great job with it and the bees are perfect addition.
