I used Copic to color this image. I used Spellbinders Dies. The sentiment is stamped and then embossed with white. I also added some embossing enamel to parts of the card. I stitched around the two rectangular pieces and I also distressed the edges of those papers. The bee is decoupaged a bit. The body is popped up a level and then one more level for the hand, the arm, the front leg and the flowers. I dry embossed black for the inside and added the twine and charm to finish it off. I used Stickles on the wings to give them a little sparkle too.

Hi Susan, this card is wonderful! I love the image and your layout on the card. Great papers for this, too. I see in your card description that you used diecuts, but did you use any punches? The challenge at The Paper Shelter is "Punches and Dies". Can you please confirm that you've used a punch on the card..and if you haven't, there's still time to add a punch and repost to our challenge. If you prefer to enter a different card, we'd love to have you join us either way! Beautiful card and your art work is wonderful. Hugs, Gail, DT
