Don't Worry...Bee Happy!

Hi everyone!  Happy Sunday!!

Before Taylored Expressions previews begin tomorrow (yay!), I have a card to share with you using a previously released set!  

I print out just about every sketch out there, and keep them in a pile until I organize them into binders.  When I sat down the other day to organize, I found this fabulous Mojo Monday Sketch, MOJO228, from last week that I hadn't worked with

I knew I wanted to work with the gorgeous new Be Amazing papers from My Minds Eye, and the yellow honeycomb pattern reminded me of the sweet beehive from Garden Party Critters...perfect!  I started with the base patterned paper and impressed it with the new Houndstooth/Damask Taylored Impression Plate, which I ADORE.

Using the Take Note Frame 3 Taylored Die, I cut the honeycomb pattern.  LOVE.  I then added another pattern for the vertical panel and added a border to the top and bottom using the Scalloped Eyelet Border Taylored Die.  I stamped the beehive in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers.  I cut it out with Circle Nestabilities and layered it onto a panel cut with the Layering Doily Small Taylored Die.  

The sentiment, "Don't Worry Bee Happy", also from Garden Party Critters, was stamped onto a panel cut with the Fly Your Flag 2 Taylored Die and tucked it under the focal panel.  I then stamped three bees, colored them with Copic Markers and cut them out.  I popped up all the elements with Foam Tape and added the bees here and there.  TONS of stitching on my Janome Sew Mini complete the card.

Here is a closeup of the beehive, and you can see the impressed background and those sweet little bees.

Here are the Taylored Dies and Taylored Impression Plate I've used on my card:
