Honey Bee for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #373

Happy Saturday!

I have a quick post for you tonight featuring my much-loved (retired) Stampin' Up! set - Honey Bee.  I know this set is retired, but you are going to continue seeing it for a long time to come. :-)

As always, I was stumped for a sketch, so popped along to AtlanticHearts.   They always have great sketches - and they have all of their archived sketches available, which is great!  Here's this week's sketch: Screen Shot 2020-06-20 at 6.35.09 PM
I actually made a couple of different cards influenced by this sketch - and you will see those later in the week.  For tonight's card though, I stuck with the sketch and used a round element.  I paired the stamped images with some of my favorite DSP - oh, yeah!  I'm hoarding that!

Here's my card:

Honey Bee (1 of 1)-3

I used a sentiment from Honey Bee Stamps called Hi Honey.  It was perfect for this challenge.  I hope you will pop along to Atlantic Hearts and check out the fabulous design team inspiration cards - and I am sure they would love it if you played along, too :-)

Before I go, I have a "what's at the feeder" photo for you.  We so rarely see the Cardinal's at this time of the year.  They are very furtive, so I captured this shot and didn't have a chance to get another.  So, it's out of focus.... but he's still gorgeous  anyway!

Cardinal (1 of 1)

I'll be back tomorrow with my Paper Players card.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
