Creative Fingers and Scrapper's Delights

Today begins a new challenge at
This week we have one of the funnest themes I've seen:
Fairy Tales

Our great sponsor this week is

The fine folks over at Scrapper's Delights allowed all of us on the Design Team to select our own image to use for this challenge.  Since I recently discovered that there is actually a Grimm's Fairy Tale called "Queen Bee," I had to search for a great bee image.  That's when I found the perfect one....

I love her attitude and that awesome honey dipper for her scepter.  The image was paired with a sentiment from Repeat Impressions.  The embellishments on the card were inspired by the sentiment.  I added some washi tape with numbers on it some white layering weight paper.  The washi tape is from the dollar bin at Meijer.  The black mesh is from a produce bag.

The little tag is from my stash and I added the number one with a Martha Stewart stamp.  A button from my stash was tied onto the tag with baker's twine.

I added a few black rhinestone stickers from the Michaels dollar bin around the white mat.  The ends of the antennae were just screaming for a couple of the small rhinestones.  I initially thought I would just add some Glossy Accents to the wings but decided to throw a bit of gold glitter on top.  I love the effect that gave.  It's like Stickles Lite.

All of us on the Design Team at
would love to see your new Fairy Tale inspired project this week.
Good luck to all that enter!
