Flourishes Friday - Just buzzin' by to say...

I've got another card for you today using one of Flourishes' latest releases, Bee My Honey. I just love this flower image with all the bees buzzing around, don't you?

I stamped the image on Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers. Then I cut it out with Spellbinders Standard Circle and Scalloped Circle Nestabilities dies and my Grand Calibur machine. I then stamped more single bee three times, once on vellum for the wings. I hope you can see the dimension I got with the vellum--I love how they turned out! I stamped the sentiment and cut it out with Spellbinders Tag Trio die and attached it with some sweet gingham ribbon and a button.

Then I just had to finish off the inside with another bee and a sentiment and frame from Sweet Violets.

Now, be sure to take a look at what the rest of the Flourishes team has to show you:
Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
