Pretty Pink Posh Sequin Shaker Part 2

I had such a great time making my first shaker card for the Pretty Pink Posh Sequin Shaker Blog Hop that I had to make one more! I've had these cute little bee dies for sometime time and finally was inspired to use them! Instead of just being part of the stamped background I wanted them to take center stage and "fly" around the scene.


For the bees, I used vellum for their wings and inked black around the edges so that they would show up better against the polka dot background. To make them sparkle, I added a tiny bit of yellow Stickles to their backs. Once I added the sequins with them, I think the effect worked really well. Here's a close up:
