Bee-you-tiful Bugs

Morning All.
I thought I would step away from the Christmas crafting for todays post and create something bright to cheer is all up.
This time of year can get fairly depressing as the nights draw in and the weather changes but at least Christmas is just around the corner with all its sparkle.

For this card I used this cute little bee die called Die D-Lies Flying Bugs.  It comes in a set of three dies with a bee, butterfly and a dragon fly.

I started with a square of white card stock and used a stencil that had a sort of honey comb pattern on it and inked through it in random places with orange an ink pad.
I then stamped the little stars in black over the top once the ink had dried.

I cut of three bees in gold card stock then another three in black card stock using my Spellbinders Platinum machine and I then ran them back through to get the embossed detail.  I glued them to each other slightly off set to create a shadow.
I then used a stamp set I got free in a magazine for the sentiment and the little dotty line trailing behind each bee.

I think this is only the second time I have used a stencil on a card and it was fun creating your own backgrounds with it.
Thanks for stopping by today and have a BEE-YOU-TIFUL day.
