Capture life simple pleasures

Yup that's what all of us should be doing... capturing life simple pleasures and enjoying them... but no we run around like crazy people!!!

Anyway... tonight I took the time to finally create my card with the fabulous digi Zinnia with Bumblebee from Anne's digital art.  It's one of the great freebie for the progressive challenge over at Outlawz challenges.  We have until Saturday to upload... and again I'm getting close to the limit.  I always feel that I have so much time... until I run out lol  Are you also like that?  Anyway here's my card

I was going to color the image... but when I found the paper I thought it looked better like this.  My hubby thought I should color the bee so I followed his advice and added some stickles to the wings.  The paper is from Soho Garden by American Crafts.  I used my large square from Spellbinder to cut this out.

Here's a closer look at the digi barely colored with my copics and stickles ;o)  The awesome sentiment is from the fabulous Create with TLC.  And BTW if you take freebies... please be nice and say Thank you!!!  That's the least that we can do for all that Paulette does.
I followed a great sketch but didn't  use the twist... so won't be able to enter the challenge... oh well...
