Double D - Use Your Scraps

Dear Ones~
This time over at Double D we are playing with scraps. We ALL have scraps of patterned papers and card stock. No one can ever bring themselves to throw anything away, so this challenge is perfect. Here is the Mood Board for our inspiration:

And here is my card:
I LOVE using scraps, and don't do it enough. Here I used an old retired Stampin' Up punch to punch out those hexagon shapes from different scraps of patterned paper. I used the Stampin' Up Detailed Bees Dies for the embellishments. The bee was die cut twice, once with black and once with gold foil. Then I inlayed the black body of the bee with the gold. I also cut the honeycomb twice and saved some of the gold "innies" for accent.

 The Ingredients:
 SU Crushed Curry Card Stock
GKD Black Onyx Card Stock
Stash Gold Foil Card Stock
Pebbles Garden Party Patterned Paper
Hackney & Co. The Emporium Patterned Paper
SU Honey Bee Patterned Paper
SU Detailed Bees Dies
SU Hexagon Punch (retired)
Trinity Stamps Gold Baubles

If you head on over to the  Double D Challenge Blog and play along, you could win this Die-namics Notched Border die. And don't forget to check out all the beautiful cards the other designers have created for your inspiration.

Until next time, here's celebrating your Creative Muse.
