LOC NR Bee-utiful Friend

 I am just popping in to show you something 'simply sweet' tonight before  heading off to bed - I held a Layers of Color Workshop today - I am so-o-o tired but had to show you these sweet Art Stamp sets...

I love the Honeysweet and Artful Endearments art stamps sets that Laura designed - they make such a quick and easy card, which for me is always hard - but not any longer!!   Don't you just love it when a stamp set is able to be used in more than one style - I know I do!  I have discovered since making this card that this set is great with vintage as well - yay!

Honeysweet has a lovely variety of sentiments, including a scripture and the most divine images, one of them coordinating with the Spellbinders Labels 18 - you have to love that!!  Naturally I have used the Spellbinders Grand Calibur - love it!!

This gorgeous edge from the Artful Endearments art stamp set finishes a card beautifully, infact I cannot wait to emboss it - it would make gorgeous lace - yumbly!!

The Bee has been stamped twice, I have cut out the wings and layered them onto the bee with foam tape.

This card is for the following challenges:
Little Claire's - Things With Wings
Always Something Creative - Yellow and another colour
By the Cute & GirlyThings with Wings
Stampin For The Weekend - wings and things
Bling It On - Anything Goes
Moxie Fab World - Tuesday Trigger - inspiration photo
