Bees/Blooms/Butterflies at Allsorts - Challenge #786

 Hi Crafters,

How lovely it was to see the sunshine this week I hope you got some too.

Our new challenge at Allsorts is all about

BEES, BLOOMS and BUTTERFLIES

and this is my card.


I purchased a new paper pad while visiting The Range recently called "Bee Fabulous" by Art Studio and the lovely, glittered honeycomb paper and central bee paper is from this pad. The gold frame is from a set of Tattered Lace Hemstitch Square dies. My flowers are Carnation Crafts "Sunny" Collection and the wonderful bee is an Indigo Blu red rubber stamp called No. 9 Bumblebee. It is a lovely size and I have coloured it with Crafters Companion Shimmer pens although the camera isn't showing the subtle shine as usual :o/  I have finished the card off with a small talk sticker which I thought eluded to the shimmer on the bee.


We have some super prizes this week once again so check out the details on the challenge blog here and come and join in the fun!

See you again soon,

Lorraine
xXx

Your card is simply stunning! The "Bee Fabulous" paper pad adds such vibrancy and charm, especially with the glittered honeycomb and central bee design. The gold frame and Carnation Crafts flowers complement the theme beautifully, and the shimmer on the bee adds a delightful touch of elegance. It's a wonderful showcase of your creativity and attention to detail!

What a lovely summery card and such lovely contrast with the black background. I haven't been to the Range for a long time, but last time I went I was very disappointed with the craft offering xx

Great card, Lorraine. The honeycomb patterned paper makes a great background. I love the sentiment.
