The Sisterhood of Crafters - Butterflies, Dragonflies & Bees


 Hello my friends!

Today I have a card for the new challenge over on The Sisterhood of Crafters!

Our theme, chosen by Sistah Vickie is:
Butterflies, Dragonflies & Bees
(use 1, 2 or all 3)

I went with BEES for today's creation.
I have this fabulous Hero Arts Stamp/Die set that I bought last year as their special monthly feature and I just love this entire set.  I reach for it often.  There's a beautiful floral spray with the set but today I simply went with the single flower stamp/die along with the bees and honeycomb.

I have used a sheet of designer paper from the Craft Consortium 'Ink Drops - Candy' paper pack for my background and simply die cut the honeycomb the added my sentiment in the center cut out.  I have used Tombow markers to water color my flowers and die cut the bees from a scrap of golden rod card stock.  I did a little shaping on the flowers & bees then popped up the bees with dimensional tape.


I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun at The Sisterhood of Crafters!
