Bee Happy

I've been playing with some Chocolate Baroque Bees.  My daughter gave me these stamps last year, but with one thing and another, I'd not started seeing how I could use them until recently.  The bees on the flower, was just crying out to be used with my new circle thinlet.
Because its been so gray and damp, I've not been able to take good photos, and as a result this was scanned in using my scanner.

This card is made using SU circle thinlet - I've used A5 piece of card (slightly trimmed, so that my card is actually longer than the die - if the card is the same height as the die, just post it in, leaving an end over the top of the die furthest from the circle), this gives a flap to fold over and means you can write inside the card.

One side is embossed with a honeycomb embossing folder (this is one of a set of three small strips from Darice).  I have used a Cheery Lynn Honeycomb frame to make a stencil which I've sponged in SU So Saffron, Peach Parfait and Crumb cake.  I've stamped Happy from Chocolate Baroque Words of Wisdom and used Bees from Chocolate Baroque Honey Bees in Soft Suede (such a lovely colour). The main image is from the same set, and was coloured in using markers, and then fussy cut and stuck with a wing over hanging. The Bees wings are painted in Frost White shimmer paint - this gives a lovely translucent effect.  Inside the card, there are the same bees/honeycomb, and on the back of the circle there is a Happy Bee Day stamp (from Inkadinkado, in case you are wondering - bought over t'internet from the US).
