what's the buzz???

Hello, friends!!  Once again, the week is flying by and the weekend is almost here!!  Have a little card that I made for a couple of challenges:  Retro Sketches and ColourQ.  



Once, again, I adhered very closely to the sketch.  Mainly because I have never made a card using hexagon shapes which are all the rage right now and I really wanted to use my The Craft's Meow Thanks Bee to Thee set which has hexagons in it.   I think the card is pretty self-explanatory.  I stamped the hexagon images, trimmed them out and then arranged them as you see.  The little bee from the set was stamped three times, trimmed out and Black Diamond stickles added to the wings.  Some kraft colored bakers twine was tied in a bow, adhered to the hexagons and then I added the bees. 

Thanks for stopping by....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white and red; SU! crumb cake; Stamps:  The Craft's Meow; Ink:  SU! Riding Hood Red, Pear Pizzazz; Memento Tuxedo Black; Punch:  SU!; Corner punch:  Fiskars
