Honey Bee

Good Afternoon!!
I ordered a few new Magnolia stamps and was so anxious to ink 'em up!! My card today is made with Honey Tilda and I've created her for the March sketch challenge over at the Magnolia-licious Highlites blog. This sketch was created by the super talented Jacque Beddingfield and I was so thrilled to find this beautiful sketch while inking up my new Honey Bee!

I've included the sketch by Jacque below and click here for a link to her blog:

And here is that totally adorable little Tilda Honey Bee image!

The Chocolate and Saffron card stock, the striped chocolate paper and the grosgrain ribbon are all Stampin' Up! products. The yellow background paper is My Mind's Eye from the "Just Dreamy" collection and was a perfect match to the Saffron card stock. I've stamped one of the layers of saffron card stock with a flourish stamp from the SU "Priceless" stamp of my all time favorite stamp sets.

Here are my Copic Colors: E000, E00, E25, E31, E33, E35, E47, E50, E51, E53, Y21 and 0-Colorless Blender.

The sentiment is a Stampendous stamp and I snipped the back off of a cute little bee button so that I could adhere it to the card. I'm still hooked on my sewing machine, so you'll find some zig-zag stitching on one of the layers.

Thanks so much for buzzing by!
