This hexagon die was in my latest happy mail. It's from Clearly Besotted and I was wondering how I could use it when I found the following challenge at The Card Concept.
So I started thinking bee hive and then I came across the following challenge at another of my favourite inspiration spots - Caseology
Then I found this great sketch at Sunday Stamps. Unfortunately my initial plan was thwarted as I thought I had bought the Happy die from Clearly Besotted but that had been out of stock and will have to wait for another day. Never mind I still had this Happy die from Sizzix - but it was so big I couldn't follow the sketch as I had initially wanted to. The other "bee in my bonnet" was that I couldn't find my Fanciful Flight die which can be used to make a bee. I think I loaned it to my friend Lena but it could just be lurking in some dark corner in my craft room, so I had to be resourceful and downloaded an image from clip art.
I am also entering this card in the following challenges
Addicted to CAS where the challenge is Texture. I've used a flocked border, glitter card and a textured doily
Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge - anything goes
