Cely's SVG Challenge & A Freebie! the hubby took off back for the mountains today, and I was able to take a quick break to work on a card for Cely's SVG Challenge! She gives away all kinds of wonderful svg's that she creates, and to celebrate her 100th follower, she is having a contest. The prize is a free svg digicart from of your choice! The create a card using any of her free svg's! Pretty easy-peasy, right?! You can even enter twice! She is going to choose one random winner, and one judged winner (actually, she has someone else choosing the judged winner, but you get the point!). :)
Without further jibber-jabber, here is my card!
(Click the photo to enlarge)
My pic is a bit skewed. Usually I will set up some background paper, and really take my time with the photo, but this place is TRASHED, and I don't think there's a flat spot around this week for laying out papers,'s skewed. But there's a plus can see the Stickles Rock Candy I used for honey, and the flower centers are Yellow Stickles glitter glue. Also, the embossing on the background shows up better, too! :) (I used the Textile Cuttlebug embossing folder on the Not Quite Navy paper by Stampin' Up).
For Cely's svg's, I used her Stump and Dog, Beehive and her Out On A Limb svg files. I stretched her stump to make it tall. I used my SCAL program to remove the owl part of the limb and then I used the Path menu to Union the beehive base to the limb, and the limb to the stump to give her beehive a place to hang. The More Mustard designer paper background is cut with my one of my Nesties Curved Rectangles dies. I inked the edges of the sentiment, which was punched with my Stampin' Up Scalloped Oval and Oval punches. I also inked the stump (tree), limb, and the dog with some Stampin' Up Soft Suede and an ink dauber. I added the spots on the dog, trying to make it look like my spotted beagle, Mia. :) His nose is colored with a black gel pen, as well as the hand-drawn bees and beehive entry hole.
The flowers are Prima flowers from my many jars. 
Here is the inside of the card, which is also your freebie for today! (Something new from me.....a digi-stamp sentiment! ) The freebie does not have the bee flight path dashes, but it does have the flowers, jar and bees, as well as the sentiment. (Not colored in).

Again with a skewed photo - only this time I cropped out my ugly, inky thumb from the pic! lol!!!
