Not Just Magnolia but A Spoon Full of Sugar and Basic Grey too

Spoon Full of Sugar has a  "freestyle" theme so any card would have worked of course and Just Magnolia had a fabulous sketch.   The challenge over at Basic Grey is animals. I realise that bees are insects and not technically animals but I am hoping to get away with it. Frankly Tilda's cute bee is certainly the size of a small animal - and it put me in mind of a giant bumble bee I watched on my patio during the autumn. It was grooming itself like a cat. I kid you not. He had his head leaning on a flower pot and was standing on his "hands" using all four of his back legs to rub his "fur"! 
Image is of course Magnolia and papers are Basic Grey.  The fence is a nameless wood mounted stamp I own and the sentiment is wordprocessed.  Thanks for stopping by!

Fabulous card Lesley, great layout, gorgeous details and I love your colouring and masking, Tilda looks so cute sat on the fence.
I think we'll let you get away with bees (lol) not quite animals, but close enough.
Thanks so much for playing along with us at BG.
