I stamped the gardenia image on watercolor paper using versamark ink and then heat embossed it using black embossing powder.  I watercolored the image and cut it out.  I used a scrap piece corrugated cardstock and placed a piece of cheesecloth behind it before adding the sentiment.  I placed a bee button between the flower and the sentiment.  I created the card background using a hexagon die cut adhered over a piece of designer paper.

Let's get started !!
Here's the Design Team
Enjoy the Hop. Come on back tomorrow for more creative fun!!
