Bee Happy

This card was created using Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #153 and the theme from Heart2Heart Challenges "The Birds and The Bees" March, 2016. 

One of my favorite CTMH Stamp Sets "Honeycomb Flair". To create the pattern down the left-hand side of the sketch I masked 1/8" strips on a piece of White Daisy cardstock, used each of the design honeycombs and stamped entire card using honey ink.  Bordered the card with black and honey cardstock.  Sentiment was cut from Cricut Design Space using Add Text, modified, grouped and welded.  The bees are from Bugaboo uploaded to Word , printed, colored and die-cut sentiment adhered and framed with black cardstock.  Distressed edges in honey and black inks.    

On the inside of the card a die-cut from Cricut Design Space which I chose to use on the inside of the card because it was too much honey color on the front of the card.

Sue, you barley squeezed this in before the deadline! I love monochromatic cards and this is a great example of one. Anything with repeating shapes is a favourite of mine and I also adore this stamp set. Super job - thanks for sharing your awesome talent with us again at Heart 2 Heart. You are always such an inspiration.

Your card certainly suits both challenges perfectly! I know you enjoy using hexagons and you made the most of that on your card. Interesting that you masked for the vertical lines - great idea.
