Hand Stamped Sentiments - Easter Buzzy!

So how have you been? I've been so busy this week.. I got my mammogram done, and then a dental visit for a cleaning. Turns out I needed a filling so back to the dentist the next day. My parents stopped by, and I'm going out for lunch tomorrow with my sister! After a busy day there's nothing better than a little crafting to help me unwind.
Today I'm playing along with this sketch from Hand Stamped Sentiments. A sketch challenge is always my favorite.. I just needed to decide on what stamp set to work with. Now that Valentine's Day is behind us my mind is on Easter! 
I love pastels for spring and Easter. I started with these papers from Birch Press Design. - gingham and distressed dots in pool. I followed the sketch for the paper layout. 
Next I added the Scallop Oval Frames in lieu of the box on the sketch. I like the pattern paper peeking through the open ovals. I added a sentiment and images from Pretty Pink Posh Easter Friends. The happy buzzy is from Bee Friends.
All of the images are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic Markers. The finishing touch is a sprinkle of sequins in Aquamarine and Sea Breeze.
I appreciate you stopping by for a visit! I hope your finding a little crafty time to unwind too! Hugs and happy crafting!
