Honey Bee

Here is a round card using aTeddy Bo as a honey bee image coloured with copics.
I cut a white circle with a Nestabilitie die and placed it on another die cut circle of flowery october afternoon paper, all matted onto dark brown textured card.  The wings were sparkled with lots of Stardust stickles.

I went to town with the flowers and foliage and used my new sweetheart blossoms, some roses and some tiny rosebuds, all from Wild Orchid, plus some leaves I punched with two Martha Stewart punches.

I finished off the card with satin ribbon, very fine cream cluny lace, black narrow ric-rac, a black and white spotty button and a bumble bee charm, all tied together with natural button twine (all from here)
I will enter this into the Papertake Weekly challenge (anything goes, option of circles) and also Stamp Something, anything with wings plus edited to add Wild Orchid, white plus 2 colours plus roses (forgot to include the WOC challenge have done it today 8th May)

This is gorgeous. I'm a sucker for shaped cards and I love the circle layers you've created with the nesties.

You've coloured the image perfectly - so cute and I LOVE all of the embellishments, especially the bunch of ribbon and lace.

Just gorgeous!! xo, Lou.
