Buzzing by

I was at a garage sale last weekend, and they had an unopened 6x6 pad of Echo Park's Country Drive.  I was so excited, and snatched it right up (while trying to explain to my husband why I was so excited).  I knew as soon as I looked through it that the first paper that I was going to use was the honeycomb/bees paper.  So I did.

This card is on black cardstock (for some reason it looks green to me in the picture).  The paper is of course, Echo Park.  The honeycomb pattern is one side and the blue strip with the two bees is from the other side.  I cut the Create a Critter bee at 3.5 inches and used foam adhesive squares to pop him up.  

See the tag?  It's from the dollar section at Target.  It's supposed to be one of those little sticky notes that you put in the page of a book to mark something important, but I just inked up the edges and glued it down.  I liked that it had a flower pattern, because bees love flowers!  I stamped it with a sentiment from Jaded Blossom's "Simply Sentiments" stamp set.  I just bought two stamp sets from them and really like them both.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Jaded Blossom: Crafter's Choice
Celebrate the Occasion: Hey Honey!
