The Hum of the Bees - Card

I wanted to show off this Cuttlebug embossing folder - I brought the set in because I love the bees!

These are the eensy, weensy blossoms from the Spellbinders Whimsy die set.  I popped the pearls into the middle of the blossom as well as nestling the slightly larger ones around the outside.

Card Synthesis:
I used the blending tool with the Distress Ink to colour the backs of the flower diecuts as the paper is single sided.  I love the little tiny flower from the Whimsy set. (But what really attracted me to the Whimsy set was that butterfly which I will use in something else soon!)
I chose Distress Tea Dye for shading the bee embossed paper, because it had that tinge of orange-peach which went with the paper.
Archival Ink was used to stamp the sentiment.
