FS117 Bee Happy!

Hello there! It's another bright card today! I'm also trying out my new, homemade light "tent" which is a dressed up cardboard box. Now I think I need to work on brighter lighting. Another day! Here's Tilda with her pet bee from the Magnolia spring Kit, but also becoming available as part of the Spring butterfly collection.
I've colored Tilda with copics and used Pacific Point and Tangerine Tango (from SU!) with my Marrakech paper (Basic Grey). Behind Tilda, looking very much like a sun is a pinking circle spellbinder die cut. I don't know how much I'll use these, but with these warm yellow and oranges I thought it was perfect! I maust say to Lisa that I am liking PP and TT a little better!
My card is for the SCS challenge (FS117) today. the honored artist is Sparkle Smith! Congratulations to her! Great name, huh? I used some stickles for sparkle on Tilda's headband and on the bee's wings.
Tilda's hair is E13, 15, and 18.
Yellows and oranges are Y11, Y38, YR16, YR07, and YR18
Aquas and blues are Bg10, B41, Bg13, B24, B37 and B39
A while ago, I said I would look up Kittie's multiloop bow tutorial and the bow I tied today was a reminder to myself to do that.
Here is the link to Kittie's excellent videos on bows:

Thanks so much for all the wonderful comments yesterday!! I treasure each one!
Stampin' hugs!
