Just beecause...Stampin Up, Graphic 45 and acetate card

Good morning!  I am showing off a card I made for a swap today.  The theme of the swap was acetate.  It is hard to discern from the photos but there is a layer of acetate behind the honeycomb die cut.  I used mostly Stampin Up products but the sunflower paper in the back is Graphic 45.

I cut an opening in the center of a standard A2 card that was just a fraction smaller than the honeycomb die cut.  I cut the acetate just a fraction larger so the die and the card and a layer behind their junction for stablility.  I stamped and embossed the bees then fussy cut them.  I stamped the sentiment and layer the sunflower paper on the inside of the card.
