busy bee season

Here's a card I made last night for two friends from book club, Alice and Dan, who named their baby after the author of one of the books we read, Bee Season by Myla Goldberg.

I was very pleased with how the card came out, particularly as I'd left my nice craft knife back at the studio and did it with only clunky scissors and pritt stick.
