BEE - Happy!

 Hello Friends!

Welcome back to my blog ... I hope today finds you healthy & happy!
I spotted the latest Memory Box challenge on another crafters blog and when I saw the theme of the challenge, I just HAD to play along.  

Yep ... you know me and my love for the color purple!  LOL

I don't have a lot of NEW Memory Box dies but I do have several older ones, so here's what I've used to create today's fun BEE Happy card  (did you catch that pun?  lol).

Memory Box Dogwood Blossom (98475)
Memory Box Dogwood Blossom Outline (98481)
Memory Box Share the Happiness (30007)
Memory Box Die - Open Studio -  Share The Happiness
Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Frames (30117)

The design paper I've used for the background is called Lavender Fields by The Paper Boutique.  As you can see in the close up (above), I die cut the word Happy twice and off set them to create a shadow effect.  And I've popped up my BEE with a pop dot!
