And here is my take on the challenge: CAS (clean and simple), one layer Bee Happy Card. :o)

How I made my card...

To make this card I used a bee stamp from Stacey Yacula Studio (Purple Onion Designs) and a sentiment from Uniko 'Bee Happy' stamp set.

I stamped the sentiment and bees directly on a white top folded card base.

I drew flying paths with a pencil, traced them with a black fine liner and erased pencil marks.

I colored bees with colored pencils. To add extra shades, I used a yellow fiber tip pen.

As a finishing touch I coated bees' wings with a transparent varnish to create glossy accents and left it dry two hours.

Card measurements: 89 mm x 121 mm  (3 1/2" x 4 3/4")

List of supplies:

I'm linking my card to following challenges:
