where we are challenged to use any

Spring Animals or Insects
 (Use your Imagination)
who can resist sweet spring animals and insects.. even bees and caterpillars are cute, right?! 

cool challenge this one!

Sweet Friend
bee gable box 
the bee will be my insect for this challenge
the bee  is from a cricut cartridge and i used regular cardstock to make it. BUT, i stamped the body and wings for that blotchy look and inked all the edges. i cut her to fit my box at 2.50 inches tall.

 a bit closer and you can see how cute she is. i used foam dots to raise her from the background.

take note i cut the gable box at 5.5 inches tall but it really comes out to be approximately 3.75 inches tall. 
this gable box is from another cricut cartridge. the cartridge gives you the scoring template.

TIP: since i use my gypsy, i put the die cut in one page and the scoring marks on another page making sure they are both at the same coordinates (x and y- on the top right corner of the gypsy screen) and i do the scoring first with the blade upside down. 

here are the supplies used in my project:
gable box patterned paper:     cosmo cricket earth love collection
yellow, mustard color and brown cardstock:   recollection
gold cardstock:     dcwv
cricut cartridges:     tags, bags, boxes and more2 (gable box); kate's abc's (bee)
bee hive:     cutlebug die
tag:    sizzix die
sentiment:     whimsical designs clear stamps
