Honey Bees Revisited

Happy May Day. Welcome to the 1st of the month Papertrey Senior Design Team post. Today we're visiting another golden oldie...Honey Bees.

Honey bees and honeycomb are very popular images right now in the crafting world. I love how Papertrey designs stamps with a timeless look. You can always reach for your stamp sets and know that the images will be right in style, even if the stamp sets are from years past. Today I created a general greeting card that features buttery yellow hues...perfect for the summer. I heat embossed the bee and honeycomb images on a die from the Button Card Collection. This was layered onto a stamped button card from Button Boutique. Vintage Buttons in Lemon Tart and a snippet of patterned paper finish off the button card. The background paper for my card base is from Dotty Biscotti.
A pretty Lemon Tart ribbon finishes off the card.

I just read on an earlier post that you used papers from your scrap stack and now realize that you are unable to answer my question. I adore your work and we seem to have the same taste. TFS.
