Golden Bees - Stampin' Up! Honey Bee

The weather just hasn't been cooperating with me in my efforts to stamp and photograph my cards to be able to enter them in various challenges.  It's been kind of dark and dreary whenever I want to take pictures of some of my projects.  By the time it's sunny and I can get some good photos the challenge is long closed.  Oh well.  At least I'm getting the inspiration and stamping time in which is really the important thing.

  Today's card is a combo of a color and sketch challenge; both of which probably closed 2 weeks ago.

  For some reason this color combo just screams "Preppy" to me.  Embroidered whale pants, hot pink sweaters tied around shoulders, dock siders...All that good stuff!

  The card base is Night of Navy stamped with the fabulous Breathtaking Bouquet background stamp.  Next, I layered some Whisper White and Melon Mambo.  The Melon Mambo panel is cut with the Stitched Rectangle dies. 

  I embossed the Honey Bee stamp in gold onto Night of Navy, Melon Mambo, and Call Me Clover and then cut them out with the matching Detailed Bee dies.  Then they are popped on dimensionals onto Whisper White stitched circles.

  The sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays is stamped in Night of Navy ink onto Call Me Clover and the strip just has the ends cut on an angle and adhered to the side. 

  This is a great layout for smaller images that might get lost on a card front if they were used just on their own.  Repeating a small image and then building up several layers of interest behind is a nice way to showcase those adorable but small stamps!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
