Bee Happy

A lovely sunny card today, bit like the weather here in the UK. We are having an unseasonable hot spell, it hasn't rained in weeks and I think most Britons are in shock lol! Usually it's tipping it down and we're all walking around in woolie jumpers and boots, freezing our behinds off.

Anyhoo, I just love this designer series paper from Stampin Up and the stamp set that accompanies it, I can't seem to put it down. The little bee from the stamp set is just adorable, I don't know why it appeals so much but I just love it to bits. The papers are gorgeous and I'm just loving the honeycomb pattern.

Here's the card, I followed the instructions for making this card base from a Split Coast Stampers tutorial on You Tube. You can find the tutorial for the flower by clicking on the tutorial link in my labels list at the side of the page.
The oval mats were cut from the Gypsy Wanderings cart and the sentiment was printed on the computer.

I used an exert from the William Blake poem, The Auguries Of Innocence. I just thought it fitted the bee theme perfectly, what bee wouldn't find heaven in a flower.
