My first post for Paper Playtime DT, Whoo hoo!

Hello and welcome!  Today is a very speacial day for me, first off it is my 40th Birthday today so I decided to show you a Birthday card, and also today is my first post for my newest Design Team - Paper Playtime

At Paper Playtime they run a challenge every other Monday with fabulous prizes if you are the lucky random winner, and today starts off a new challenge for you to enter into: Use a Bee.

The card I made to show you today is a little scene I created using a bunch of my Die cuts and of course my favorite little girl - Lulu from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.  I am soooooo not a bee person, so I did not make my bees the focal point of my card, but opted to have them as an embelishment instead.  I think that the bees add a little extra fun to this card =)

Here is a picture of the inside that I decorated as well....
