Jacksonville Starz February Hop

Hello from Southwest Florida, welcome to the Jacksonville Starz Monthly Hop.  This months hop was inspired by a sketch and I can't wait to see what the Starz have created to dazzle you. 
Here is our sketch inspiration....

Here is my interpretation....

The stamp is Baby Bumblebee and a sentiment from Baby, We've Grown.  Baby Bumblebee is a single wood mount stamp and is featured in the Occasions Mini.  I used Smoky Slate for my Base cut 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.  Next came a layer of Soft Sky which was cut at 5 1/4 x 4 and textured with the Honeycomb TIEF.  The piece of Whisper White was cut to 4 3/4 x 3 1/2 and wrapped with Washi Tape from the Sweet Dreams collection, I stamped the antenna in Black Memento Ink on the White card stock.  I stamped my baby on a scrap of White and colored him with Ivory Blendies and Soft Sky Stampin Write Makers.  I fussy cut him out and then added some 2-way glue to the wings and colored stripes on his body then dipped him into Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.  For the tag I took a 1 1/4 x 3 strip of Whisper White and stamped the Sweet Baby from the Baby, We've Grown set, it is mounted on a slightly larger piece of Soft Sky CS and the flagged end was created with the Hexagon punch (I got this idea from Connie Stewart).  To Assemble I mounted the Textured Soft Sky piece to the base and the Whisper White Washi Tape piece to that using Snail Adhesive.  The Baby Bumblebee was mounted to the card with Dimensional and the tag was tucked under the baby and adhere with Snail.  The tiny heart on the bottom was done with a scrap of White covered in Washi tape, mounted with a 1/4 dimensional.
