SSSC#176 - Bee Mine

 Hi there and good morning!  It's time for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #176.  Our talented  Sweet Sunday Sketch team member Vicki Burdick designed today's sketch and I know you're going to love it as much as I do.
 For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Honey Bee to create a Valentine's Day card.  I decided to go with a square card instead of a standard sized card.  I used some retired SU designer paper, a Martha Steward scallop border punch, Nestabilite dies and some PTI flower and banner dies.  The bee was stamped in black and pretty in pink ink, then glittered up and cut out and as a finishing touch to my card I added a heart button with bakers twine and two heart stick pins.
