Now for some specifics about my card.  I started off by stamping the image with Memento Ink (Dandelion) so that I could do the No Line Coloring technique. Then I colored the image with Copic markers.  Lavender Iris glitter was added to the bee's wings and Lemonade glitter was added to the flower centers as well as the bee movement lines.

The frame was die cut using the Spellbinders Opulent Ovals die and Nuvo Crystal Drops (Sugared Almond) was added to the ends.

The card base includes the Pleated Skirt Fold and a circle punch was used for the sentiment.  The circle base was colored using Nuance powder pigments (Hot Pink, Red) before heat embossing the sentiment with Clear embossing powder.

Your next stop on the SNS New Reveal Blog Hop is Shona and I know she has something wonderful to share with you.  Be sure to comment on each of the Designers' blogs for your chance to win all the new stamp sets revealed this month.
