Bee Happy!

I was re-organizing my stamps a little bit and found this cute bee stamp I've had for years. Have no idea if I even ever used it. But, it'll work perfectly for the Celebrate the Occasion challenge "Hey Honey" because it's Honey Month. And who makes honey? Beeeeeeesssss! 

I used an embossing folder and stamped Mustard Seed Distress Ink inside the front cover. After embossing, I than went over it with Peeled Paint and Antique Linen. 

Spellbinders circle and lacey circles for the bee and background. 

The bee image is by Rubber Stampede. I used Versamark and embossed with black embossing powder. Colored with Copic (Y06). 

Corner punch all around. 

And....I used scrap pieces of paper for all of it. :-) 

I also am just starting to make cards for Operation Write Home (OWH). This will be the first one to add to the collection box. You make cards for deployed service members so they can write home!! This is my first card to add to the collection.
