Freshly Made Sketches #69

We are back with a fresh new sketch by Linda at Freshly Made Sketches!  I still had my Buzz & Bumble Workshop on the Go Kit on my desk...and decided the faux wax seals would be a perfect fit for the sketch.  While I have never been a fan of bees, this paper pack is quickly becoming a favorite.  Just in case you  missed my previous card, you can view it here.  Here is a look at the original sketch, feel free to change out the shapes in your own design.

The faux wax seals come as a solid color and look just like real wax seals, down to their imperfect edges.  I added highlights to mine with a gold metallic marker.  I wanted the seals to be more of a focal point of my card and the gold really helps them shine.

I added a few details to the inside and kept it blank for more writing room.  The bee and swirl stamp are included in the kit!  The swirl is actually a long border stamp, I only used a small portion on the inside corner to add some movement to my bee.
