Dragonfly Dreams with Hexagons and a Bumblebee

Every two weeks or so the team that I'm a part of  has a challenge to create and share something that will inspire the rest of the team.  This time around we have a sketch challenge.  I had a head start on the rest of the team because I set the challenge...the starting point has a tag as the focal point together with a sentiment on a thin strip.  This was my interpretation of the sketch! 
The Dragonfly Dreams bundle also contains a bumblebee which I have teamed up with the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I have used the Hexagons folder in the usual way on the white part of the tag, but I have also used it as a stamp on the background.  All you have to do is apply ink to one side of the folder, sandwich the card layer inside the folder and press together.  Voila!  A honeycomb background.  Admittedly, it does feel a little bit weird to use the folder in this way, but I love the result and it feels just right for this picture.

The embossing folder gives a really deep and luxurious texture to the card.  Extremely tactile.  The bee's wings are adorned with a coating from the Wink of Stella pen and the finishing touch is with a baker's twine bow on the tag.

 Thanks for stopping by today.  Happy crafting
