Bee-utiful Friend Tilda with bee

I made this bee-utiful card for a very bee-utiful friend. I've been wanting to try cutting some background images with my cricut to go with my Tildas for some time and thanks to Magnolia Stamp Lovers challenge I did it. I love how it turned out and have so many ideas running around in my head right now to try you wouldn't believe it.

On the inside of the card I stamped and colored the bee then glued a strip of pp along the bottom leaving a section free of adhesive. I then slipped the bookmark in.
