Baby Bee Card | Kalyn Kepner for Paper Smooches

 

I used the new Giddy Bugs die set and the cute bee from the Giddy bugs set to create a baby card. I also used the “welcome baby” sentiment from the Salutations stamp set.

Now you’re on to the fabulous Kay Miller’s blog! Enjoy the rest of the hop and thanks so much for stopping by!

    This is super sweet! I love the little bee – so adorable for a baby card, the colors are just perfection and the layout is just perfect! Love your style!
