Bee Happy

Hello friends ...
Darlene with you today and I had SO MUCH fun creating this card for you!
  I had this idea in my head when I purchased these dies and I'm very happy with the outcome!  
I hope you like it too!

The dies I have used are:

Memory Box - Dies - Honeycomb Square
Memory Box - Dies - Intricate Bee
Tutti Designs - Word Set - Happy
Memory Box - Dies - Classic Upper Alphabet

Remember, if you ever find the die you want is Out Of Stock ...
Click on the 'Put Me On The Waiting List', fill out the form and you will be notified as soon as that die is back in stock!

Now, here are a couple of tips on how this card was put together.
Distress Ink Pad - Fossilized Amber
I used yellow gingham designer paper as my background, but sponged the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink to add depth.  I die cut the honeycomb twice.  Leaving some of the area pieces in place and removed others, I glued (and linked them together) on my designer paper background.

I used this same paper for the wings & body of the bee.  Adding ink to only the body part of the bee ... not the sections used for the wings ... giving them more of a transparent look.

Here's another peek at the finished card . . .

I hope you've enjoyed what I've shared today!
