Congratulations ...

Time for another challenge at
A Little Bit Crafty and this month the challenge is 'The Birds & the Bees'
I do hope you can come and play along with us for the chance to win some goodies?

I have used the gorgeous new kit from Nitwit Collections and this one is called 
'Daffodil Joy' and it is so pretty.

This may look like an ordinary card on the front but I have put an acetate spiral inside
for the bees to buzz from flower to hive, loving this technique, never tried it before.

I have also used Kraft, stamp, Promarkers, glossy accents for the honey, flowers, buttons & pearls.
Hand stitched and the sentiment is CG.  All shapes, matting & layering including the acetate spiral & bee 
were completed on my Silhouette.
