So Sweet bee card using Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

Hello and welcome to today's inspiration for the latest Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge sketch.  I love this week's sketch and the vast versatility!  I have been wanting to use this background paper ever since I purchased it as part of a kit.  The kit is really fantastic and I can't wait to use more of it.  


 Here is the sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

 When I saw this sketch I wanted to try another shape besides squares and the hex's worked perfectly with the bee theme.  To create this card I used the following steps:
  1.  Recollections precut card base 5"x 7"
  2. Cut background paper 4.5"x 6.5"
  3. Die cut and emboss four pieces golden Distress card stock with hex dies
  4. Die cut and emboss four pieces black paper with stitched hex dies
  5. Die cut sentiment from golden Distress card stock
  6. Ink edges of all paper with chalking ink
  7. Add bee stickers to center of golden die cut hexes
  8. Add lace ribbon to bottom of printed paper and trim off excess
  9. Add flower with brad in center to ribbon strip
  10. Adhere sentiment below ribbon strip with glue
  11. Layer and adhere hexes to top section of card
  12. Add a writing panel inside

Recollections card and envelope
Spellbinders Phrases set one
Stitched Hexagon nesting die 7 count
Creative Memories Stickers
Quick Quotes Powderpuff Chalking inks
Flower, brad, and lace ribbon
Distress card stock and various papers
