Double D - 'BEE' Inspired


Hello Dear Friends!

It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
 Diane is our host for today's challenge and the theme is:
'Bee' Inspired
Use bees and/or anything that inspires you on the mood board.
(honeycomb, yellow, black, hexagon etc)
and here's the inspiration board she has created 
to help get you started . . .


 I had fun with this one and realized I had more BEE stamps/dies then I thought I did but I still went with my January kit from Hero Arts.  


I die cut the flower dies from some scrap card stock to use as masking and had a little fun with my lower right corner designs.  I've also used the Memory Box 'Texture Honey Comb' stencil (#88521) along with TH distress oxide Wild Honey & Amber ink for my honeycomb background.


The sentiment used is from Unity Stamps 'All Hail the QUEEN Bee'.

All Hail the QUEEN Bee

So be sure to pop over to the Double D Challenge Blog to see all the details and amazing samples offered up by our VERY TALENTED design team ladies!!

Here's the prize you'll be playing for this time around ...


 How cute is this stamp set!  LOL

 Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hope to see you at Double D!

As always . . .
