Reveal for the Card Chain Challenge for May

 I'm always fascinated by the cards and everyone's style that people make and always pleased to receive a card from someone near or far.  I think this card qualifies for a "fancy fold".  I certainly hope so.  

I've found the Sunny Studio small sets to be such fun and will work so well with the new Whimsy fold card die I purchased.  I used the Just Bee-cause stamps & matching dies on each fold of the card.  It was so much fun to put together.  I used at least one bee for each page of this mini slimline tri-fold card with lots of little hearts on the first two pages.  Those hearts are so small, I could use the scraps from the Sunshine die cut to cut them out.

I die cut and stamped a back piece for this card.  Since I used a light weight card stock for the card, this extra bit of paper adds a bit more stability to the card and gives a good place to write a proper note.
