Busy Bumble Bee

Morning and we have a new challenge starting at Create and Inspire-sponsored by Sheepski Designs and I used the fabulous image
"Bumble Bee Blossom" coloured with promarkers and glossy accents on wings.
The B.paper was a craft mag freebie and I overstamped with the Chocolate baroque Bee and Honeycomb stamps,the small Bee strip was from snipit box/hessian from stash and the stamped sentiment from Crafters Companion,cardstock from Papermill Direct.
Stitched square die from The Works.

I looked at the lovely floral image and thought how very pretty and then the way you have layered the DP's and was sure I was Allsorts on your list but no - it would fit a treat though !
