What will the Babee Bee?

I don't know if I've told you . . . My daughter-in-law is expecting our first grandchild.  Her sisters recently held a small shower for her - the theme was "What will Baby Bee?".  It was amazing -- the weather cooperated spectacularly for socially distancing. The decorations, food, company were over the top. It was fantastic.  
So I made this card (x many) for her sisters and mom, and for my very dear friend who made bee-themed masks), and for my sister and nieces who gave me Grandma-to-be gifts.  
Here's a peek at the inside:

I'm putting this into the following challenges: 

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge This is where I started my card -- I usually look for sketches, then colors.  This sketch was perfect.  

Papercraft Challenge     Challenge # 62 - Black + White + one additional Colour - When you add yellow to black and white you get a combo Perfect for Bees.  I did use a bit of blue for the wings and pink for the face.  
I'm also putting the card into the following challenges:
Always Fun Challenge #181 Anything Goes
NBUS - the pattern paper is an old unused pack from DCWV - the stamp "bees knees" is from an old sentiment set by Pink by Design - never been used. 

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Animal Antics - Bees are in the Animal Kingdom. 

  • Stamps: Honey Bee - the front image and inside sentiment; MFT the inside images
  • Paper: DCWV 
And here are the grandparents to be:  

This week we said Good Bye to summer.  Here is a photo of the last summer sunset taken from Patchogue dock.  Doesn't this just look a card waiting to be made? 
As always, thanks for taking a peek.  Stay safe
