The Queen Bee's Birthday....

Hello to you!  Cherry here with a tutorial today!  I decided to create an extra special birthday card along with a gussied up envelope.   It is always fun to make someone feel extra loved on their day. 
                                        I started with my card and stamped some French style bee images from Crafty Secret along the bottom of the card and envelope. I then colored some of my images in with a soft pink Tim Holtz distress marker.  From there it was time to pick some papers and adhere along with adding a few diecut borders.  I decided to add some Catherine white lace along the bottom half of card to soften it up a bit.  Once done with that I picked out some May arts fleur de lis  ribbon.  It is the center point of the card and I made sure when tying my knot that the fleur de lis were standing up right.  I tied my bow and then added another to the top.  I also added this ribbon to my envelope as a border and bow.  I used Scor-Tape for the fleur de lis border.  It adheres the ribbon well and allows for a nice smooth finish.  I of course HAD to add a bit of seam binding as well.  I added Baby pink seam binding that I crinkled.  
It was time to add some bits and bobs...I topped the card off with a tag and a gorgeous Prima wood button.  The envelope had to have a little more as well so I added a metal key along with a  birthday tag and a pink lovely tag for fun.  Soft, feminine, and oh so French!  Hope you enjoy!  cherry
