Happy Tuesday!   I have a fun card to share today!  I am guest designing at City Crafter Challenge Blog for this week's "Feeling Prickly" challenge.  Check out this fun inspiration photo.

For my card I started with a white card stock panel.  I stamped the background image from Better Together using distress inks in scattered straw, squeezed lemonade, and wild honey overlapping each impression.  I spritzed water and blotted off for even more dimension. Then, I added splatters of the distressed colors.  

I die cut and inked up the honeycomb pattern from The Buzz die set.  I die cut and colored two bumble bees with copic markers using The Buzz stamp set and coordinating die.  I added some wink of stella to the wings for some added shimmer.  

I finished my card with a white embossed sentiment from same set, some loose threading, and a few sequins from Verve's Harvest Gold Sequin Mix. 

 As always thanks so much for stopping by!
