It's been a while since I've joined my DT in challenges and created a card, but today I managed. :o)
And here is my take on the challenge:CAS (clean and simple), one layer, Birthday Snail Card - Croatian Sentiment. :o)
To make this card, I CASEd (copied and shared everything) a card that I made two years ago (here). I went with same design, used same products, just went with a bit different color scheme (on this card a snail's house is a bit lighter, yellowish). :o)
I hope you'll like my card for this challenge and get inspired. For more inspiration, check out BEAUTIFUL cards my super talented Design Teammates and our Guest Designer created for the challenge. Do join us in this challenge, we are looking forward to see your creations. :o)

Bees and other pollinatorsare very important for ensuring food quality, as well as preserving the entire ecosystem and natural biodiversity. Bees provide a wide range of benefits to humans from pollination of food crops and apicultural products.
Honey bees provide a wide range of benefits to humans from apicultural products, pollination of food crops and ecological services. Beekeeping is practiced all around the world. Honey and wax are the best known primary products of beekeeping, but there are more products of beekeeping that are very valuable. The main bee products that are used for human consumption are: honey, pollen, propolis, royal jelly and venom. Source: http://www.fao.org/fsnforum/activities/discussions/beekeeping I use most products mentioned above regularly: honey, pollen, propolis and royal jelly. I find these all great for my health and for boosting my immune system. :o) Only thing I don't and can't use from bees is venom. I'm very allergic to bee's venom (and other stinging insects) and have very bad allergic response to those.
Previous four years, I organized here on my blog To Bee Or Not To Bee Blog Hop, a special annual blog hop supporting bees. Some of my crafty friends joined to hop along with me and there were some amazing sponsors who gave away generous prizes. :o)
Aim of the hop was to celebrate World Bee Day, to support bees and bees protection, to raise public awareness of the importance of bees and beekeeping and benefits of using apicultural products for our health.
This year I organized the hop, but due to the family situation, I had to postpone it. At this point, I need to focus on myself, my health, my baby boy Fran, my family and partner Goran. The hop will be as soon things get back to normal and when I'll be able to focus on the hop.
If you like, you can visit previous years' hops for some inspiration and information about bees.
