Some bees a la Heady!

First of all THANK YOU to all who responded to my Karen Foster snap stamp dilemma and who also contacted the company. I found a few places to order just what I wanted *Big GRIN*...they are now on their way.

Now onto the card...
Nichole Heady comes up with the most brillant designs when it comes to cards, stamps, editorials...this woman just plain ROCKS! I admire her work (and of course her Papertrey Ink stamp sets *wink*)and have always wanted to try this card tutorial. The bees were calling my name again so I thought they would be perfect for the job. Besides, I knew you wanted to see some more bee designs. Wait until you see the Wooderson "bee" tent topper tomorrow!!! It's just BUZZIN' for fun.

This is awesome! I love the new paper on this, and the flap with the punched out circles. Your coloring on the bees is wonderful!
