Bee Birthday

I had this cool image (a freebie from Sugar Creek Hollow) colored up and in my stash for awhile. I though it was the perfect focal point for a birthday card for my sweet sister-in-law. She's one of my biggest fans and claims to love everything I make. It means so much to know the recipient of a creation appreciates it. It also makes me a little bit stressed to not lose my mojo! I wouldn't want to dissapoint her. :o)
