Sweet Honey Bee card

Hey all. I wanted to share with you a card I created today using a few products we have for sale in our store. It isn't at all like it started out to be, but what I ended up with was far more interesting than the simple design I started out creating...thanks to a gnawing, nagging imagination.

Look below and see what happens when you start with a semi-boring idea and it gets bit by a rabid creative monster that stalks you all around your craft room until you give in and let it run wild with your original design idea:
Seriously, I just started out intending on embossing a shimmer sheet and sticking a bee to it and putting it on a card...and this is what happened when my imagination started gnawing at me and it said to me, "Your idea is too BORING...Spice it up, paint a picture, set a scene and make it wobble too!" LOL.
Who can argue with that?

Supplies used (the best that I can recall): Kraft cardstock, Yellow Iris Shimmer Sheetz, Tim Holtz Embossing folders (honey comb, wood grain, shattered), Staz-On Saddle brown ink, Pink Paislee bee stamp, Distress embossing ink, Ranger Fine Detail Embossing powder in Black, Heat it Tool, Distress markers in Wild Honey & Mustard, Wide tip Water brush, Vintage Photo Distress ink, Tim Holtz Sizzix Regal Crest die (foliage for the leaves), Flower Soft on the bee's body, Action Wobble to give the bee some movement.
