Crafty Calendar Challenge - Shaped Card

It's the first Saturday of August and you know what that means.  It's time for our August challenge at Crafty Calendar and the challenge is to make a shaped card.  Today the Design Team is showcasing some wonderful digital designs from SheepSki Designs, sponsor for our August challenge.

When I saw that wonderful bumble bee on the flower, it brought to mind the dog we had when I was a child.  Dodie was a red cocker spaniel and was named such as I couldn't say doggie well enough for everyone to understand what I was trying to say.  Anyway, one of the things Dodie loved to do was to chase down bumble bees and eat them.  We were never sure how she avoided being stung, or if she didn't, how could she handle the sting.  She was such a sweet puppy and whenever I see a bumble bee, I think of her.     

Digital Design:  Bumble Bee Blossom (Images (c) SheepSki Designs); Stamp Sets:  Butterfly Basics, Sheltering Tree (Images (c) Stampin' Up!); Ink:  Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Marina Mist; Copic Markers:  E33, E37, E39, V12, V15, V17, Y11, Y17, YG11, YG13, YG17; Cardstock:  Watercolor Paper (Strathmore), Whisper White; Other:  Hearth & Home Framelits Dies, Labels Collection Framelits Dies, Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies, Golden Harvest Glitter Drops (Nuvo), White Blizzard Glitter Drops (Nuvo), Rhinestone Basic Jewels

Here is what the card looks like when it is open.  I stamped the inside with a honeycomb image but there is still a wee bit of room for you to write a small note if you wanted just above the thinking of you sentiment.
