CASC&S454 Hexagon Bee

Happy midweek, peeps!  My card today uses the sketch from CAS Colours & Sketches, created by my friend and teammate, Joanne:

I really love the prints and warm colors of this particular piece of the Heart & Home DSP collection; in fact, both sides of this piece were used for my card.  The print flips to this cool diagonal woodgrain design! 

I used my Stamparatus to get a good impression of this sweet sentiment from Free as a Bird, stamped in Memento Black, and I added a little scrap of Pale Papaya left over from panel that was diecut with a Stitched Rectangle die. The slim cut worked perfectly:

I used a retired Hexagon punch to punch out a piece of Cinnamon Cider cardstock and ran it through the Timeworn Type EF, sponged it a little bit and adhered it to a piece of Basic Gray, then trimmed it down to create a little mat,  I fussy-cut a little bee from a scrap of the same DSP, then popped it up on the hexagon:

You can't see it but the bee's wings have a brush of Wink of Stella pretty in real life!  Thanks for popping in today!

I took a walk out in our woods on Sunday and as I went over the little bridge that spans the creek behind our property, I saw these icy designs along the edges:

They look eerie, yet beautiful!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

"There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the Lord."  Proverbs 21:30

I like the warm tones of the DP, this is pretty! Isn't nature amazing. The ice is a little spooky looking, but amazing!

I was not going to get this set, but I love that paper so much I may have to. Your card is gorgeous. Love the little strip of Pale Papaya on it.
Almost more than your card, though I love your photos of the ice! Those are some awesome patterns you captured.

What a pretty card, LeAnne! This DSP looks fabulous and adding the pale papaya trim between the 2 patterns was a brilliant idea. Thanks so much for joining us at CC&S this week.
