Doodled bugs!

... well doodled bees, anyway! This weeks challenge at Sweet Stampin' is to add some doodling to your project! Personally, I don't mind a little bit of doodling but there has been much wailing and gnashing of teeth from some of the DT!
For my card I used this lovely little baby bee fairy from Mo Manning, coloured with copics. The bees on the yellow circle are hand doodled as is the little bee by the hand written sentiment. The 2 little bees in the top left corner are cut with a memory box die, their wings are cut from acetate, which doesn't show very well in the photo but is quite effective IRL!
Thanks for taking the time to look! Please hop over to Sweet Stampin' to check out what the rest of the DT have made... fabulous creations despite all the anguish! Then get out your pens and start doodling - you could win a prize from one of our lovely sponsors-Sir Stampalot, Crafters Companion or The Ribbongirl.
Have a lovely weekend!
